Hepatitis C is a virus spread through contact with infected blood.

The hepatitis C antibody blood test is the most commonly ordered screening for hepatitis C virus (HCV). This test looks for antibodies that develop in response to an infection. These antibodies are usually detectable at 4-12 weeks or greater after exposure. Results for this test are quantitative and will indicate a reactive (positive), nonreactive (negative), or in some cases, equivocal result. Hepatitis C is a virus spread through contact with infected blood. Nearly 80% of hepatitis C infections develop into chronic hepatitis. The number of people worldwide with chronic hepatitis C infections is around 150 million. Chronic hepatitis C infections can lead to serious health complications such as cirrhosis and liver cancer. Many HCV infections display no symptoms. When symptoms do occur, some of the most common include fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, dark-colored urine, grey feces, and jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes). Hepatitis C can be spread in a variety of ways. Some of the most common include intravenous drug use, improperly cleaned or sterilized tattoo and piercing equipment, sexual contact, blood transfusions, and from an infected mother to her infant during birth. The hepatitis C antibody blood test is mostly ordered as routine screening. This test can be ordered by anyone who is concerned they have been exposed to the HCV regardless of whether they are experiencing symptoms or not.

Lab tests FAQs

No. At Tripment Health, we focus on providing transparent healthcare services to uninsured or under-insured individuals. We’ve negotiated prices directly with lab test facilities to make diagnostic lab panels available to individuals who would rather pay directly than go through a private or government-sponsored insurance carrier.

No. By purchasing a blood panel, you will not be able to submit any claim, bill, or other request for reimbursement to any insurer, third-party payer, or Government health program. However, you can use your FSA or HSA card.

You will receive a payment confirmation email, then an additional email confirming your appointment details (type of test, time and location of appointment, and QR code). You will need to present your QR code to the testing facility in order to check in.

Once your test is complete, you will receive your results within 1-3 business days.

With a blood panel, you can establish your body’s baseline values for basic health measurements like cholesterol (total, triglycerides, HDL, LDL and total cholesterol/HDL ratio), glucose and hemoglobin A1c. Additionally, depending on the blood panel you choose, you will receive data on performance measurements such as Vitamin D, Vitamin B12, Magnesium, Thyroid Stimulating Hormone, and/or Testosterone.

 

Your results are more than just numbers. Your results come with a personalized recommendation from one of our physicians.
