FDA Approved At Home Test for Hep C
Is there an FDA Approved At Home Test for Hep C that can give you the results in a few minutes? If so: What is the name of it? Who manufactures it? Who distributes it?

They have FDA approved at home test but the sample must be sent in, also it is only an antibodies test and if positive you would need to see a doc for more blood test to confirm an active HCV infection.

You're welcome to use our free voucher for a mail in test.  It is part of our "Test the Rest" campaign to find infected veterans but it can be used by ANYBODY.  Print the voucher, mail in the $10 donation and the lab will send you the test kit.  The test is done by a reputable lab and it is anonymous. The test kit includes a number you give the lab when you call to obtain your results.  

Please be aware that HCVets makes no money from this.  If you know a veteran please pass it to him.  Help us find them so that we can "Test the Rest"!.

This program is not being promoted  though the VA is it now? Va only pays for lab work via VA or fee basis. I would not give any unsecured info to this service. Just my humble opinion

jewls....the test is done by an independent, reputable lab.  It has nothing to do with the VA.  We started this project because the VA is not testing many of the veterans.  They don't tell them that military service is a risk factor and many are infected and don't know it.  The VA is not interested in finding them but we are.  Please let me know if you have any other questions.

The United States Department of Veterans Affair offer extensive up to date
information about Hepatitis C under Veterans Services, Public Health.
They are the single biggest provider of Hepatitis C treatment and it shows
in the presentation of information to the public.   The information on this
site for Hepatitis C treatment is really easy to read and understand.
