Are you born between 1945 – 1965? Get Tested!
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are recommending that all U.S. baby boomers – the generation born from 1945 – 1965 – get a one-time hepatitis C virus screening test. Sonora Quest offers Hep C screenings for patients without a doctor’s order through My Lab ReQuest. The $38 screening includes a simple blood test where they will examine the antibodies to see if a patient has been exposed to Hep C. If the screening comes back positive, a molecular quantitative test will be performed to see exactly how much of the virus is in the blood.
