Although I do not use the VA services there are others here who have that expereince. As I recall, the comments about the VA care and services were very positive.  Rather than asking a general question you may consider posting some specific questions so that when the vets come along they can try to address with specific answers.

dmk - I am treating but not at the VA(I'm not a vet). I have however attended a hep c support group there with Vets that are treating. From what I could see they have a golid caring liver team. Moniker may know more about it. I know he's been to the group but am not sure if he treats through the VA. What area are you in?

I'm almost certain bronx is being treated by the VA. I added his name so maybe he'll see it. Best to ya
