If you’re like me, all of the heated media coverage surrounding the Affordable Care Act (ACA), a.k.a “Obamacare,” has created a strange collection of vague assertions that are tough to sort out. What are the actual facts about this health care reform that everyone seems so excited about? Fortunately, I know some experts here at the San Luis Obispo AIDS Support Network & SLO Hep C Project, and they have assisted me in unraveling what is actually true when it comes to the groundbreaking ACA.

What is the first step? And, why is someone from the ASN & SLO Hep C Project writing an article about all of this?

We are here to help. For the past several months, several of us have undergone extensive training to become certified enrollment counselors, and we are now one of only three county agencies (Department of Social Services, Community Health Centers, and us) you can visit for assistance as you navigate the ACA. As someone who has personally witnessed our counselors’ intense training and transformation into outstanding ACA advisors, trust me when I say: We are ready for you.

Get Tested. Get Treated. Get Cured.

Here are 3 reasons why You should get tested for Hep C:

  1. You could have Hep C even if you feel fine! It can take 30 years for you to develop any symptoms. Untreated, the virus could cause significant damage to your liver, including cancer or cirrhosis.
  2. If you do have Hep C, new treatments have improved dramatically and even have an over 90% cure rate! The sooner you get tested, the quicker you can get treatment!
  3. You are especially at risk for Hep C if you were born between 1945-1965; if you’ve ever used IV drugs; or, if you received a blood transfusion before 1990.

The test is quick, easy, and, thanks to generous funding from Dignity Health Community Grants Program, confidential Hep C testing is now available to you FREE at locations throughout SLO County!

Call us or any of our community partners and we’ll get you connected to a testing site near you!
