Most cases of Hepatitis C (70-80 percent) show no symptoms,
making it harder to identify and report the true burden
of the disease in Colorado

With the rising rates of Hepatitis C in Colorado, it is crucial that we support more people living with this disease to receive the treatment they need. Primary care providers can treat Hepatitis C in their office and in most cases won’t need to refer their patients to a specialist. The explanation of changing demographics, treatment options and protocols for Hepatitis C is essential for providers to deliver the best care to their patients.

This ECHO series is intended for primary care providers in Colorado who are looking to gain knowledge in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of Hepatitis C.

Colorado Medicaid has added ECHO Colorado to the Prior Authorization Request, which applies to participants of the Hepatitis C in Primary Care learning series in 2019 and beyond. Providers who attend and complete this series do not need to consult with an infectious disease specialist, gastroenterologist, or hepatologist for approval on the Prior Authorization Request if the patient is without cirrhosis.
