If you are cured of Hepatitis C is it still a pre existing condition?
I successfully went through treatment for Hepatitis C and a found SVR through Harvoni going forward is this considered a pre existing condition insurance wise?  I would hate for this to follow me and hinder being able to get insurance? Thank god for Obama care I was able to treat now with this current political climat I am afraid this might hurt me in the future.  If anyone knows how this works can you help me understand?  Thank you

I'll bet there are no precedents. What you would have to do is apply for insurance, admit that you had hep-c but were cured, and see what happens. If they turn you down, sue them and establish a legal precedent.

I am thinking you don't have a condition as you don’t have Hepatitis C. You used to have Hepatitis C but you don’t have it now.

Say for example if you are currently pregnant and apply for insurance it would be a preexisting condition. But after the baby is born you are no longer pregnant and that would not be a preexisting condition any longer.

I know this is an older post just throwing my two cents in.

You had hep C.   You don’t have hep C.  I won’t even bring it up.  It doesn’t apply anymore.

Good question! I recently renewed my drivers license and changed the Donor option but was told that since I had previously opted to be donor, I wouldn't change it without a lot of hassle.I would love to donate blood and organs but is this possible now? IDTS

From what I understand they can still use our organ donations and we can still donate.

Say a person who is like us cured but antibody positive. They wouldn’t want my liver too banged up but my kidneys are fine and corneas etc
