Liver damage restrictions

Fee-For-Service (FFS) and Managed Care Organizations (MCOs) require a diagnosis of hepatitis C. Neither imposes liver damage requirements.

Sobriety restrictions

FFS and MCOs require one-month sobriety prior to initiating treatment.

Prescriber restrictions

FFS and MCOs require a prescription be written by or in consultation with a specialist.

Recommendations

  • Remove sobriety and prescriber restrictions.
  • Maintain hepatitis C coverage parity between FFS and MCO programs and transparency regarding prior authorization requirements.
