The deadline is approaching (Tues, April 30th) for organizations and companies to sign the letter urging Secretary Sebelius to ensure that Medicare incorporates hepatitis C screening into the Welcome to Medicare exam and the Medicare annual wellness visit. This action would greatly expand HCV testing among those born between 1945 and 1965 and mark a significant step forward in implementing the CDC’s testing guidelines. Following the letter is a list of signatures as of April 24.
The deadline for signing the letter is 5 pm Eastern, Tuesday, April 30, 2013. The letter will be sent to the Secretary on May 1st, the first day of Hepatitis Awareness Month.

Deadline: 5 pm Eastern, Tuesday, April 30, 2013. Please forward this widely and encourage other organizations to sign!
