This test means you were exposed to the Hepatitis C virus at some time in the past. The test confirms that you have the antibodies in your system. You will need another test called a PCR test to see if you have the actual virus. Sometimes a persons immune system is able to fight off the virus and will just have the antibodies. I think this only happens around 15-20% of the time.
Best of luck
