It appears that you were at one time exposed to the Hepatitis C virus and cleared it on your own. About 20% of people do clear the visrus on their own. They no longer have Hepatitis C (although they will always have a positive antibody). You have a negative PCR, which means you do not have Chronic Hepatitis C. You do not have to keep getting tested. The only way you will get Chronic Hepatitis C is if you get exposed to the Hepatitis C virus again and get infected again. However, because you were exposed at some point in your life, you will always test positive for the antibodies even though you do not have Hepatitis C.
So you do not have to keep getting tested. You do not have Hepatitis C. Best wishes for the future.
