- People with HIV
- People who have ever injected drugs and shared needles, syringes, or other drug preparation equipment, including those who injected once or a few times many years ago
- People with select medical conditions, including:
- people who ever received maintenance hemodialysis
- people with persistently abnormal ALT levels
- Prior recipients of transfusions or organ transplants
- Children born to mothers with HCV infection
Anyone may receive Hepatitis C testing who requests it, regardless of disclosure of risk factors.
