(Question split off into a new topic)
Hello,

Great question, with an answer that could easily vary over the years. The short answer is that Medicare will cover some of the costs of Hep C treatment, and depending on factors such as whether you have Medicare Part D, or an Advantage Plan (Part C). Without one of these add-ons, my guess would be that the gap in coverage would be very expensive, as Hep C treatment is costly, and would suggest you discuss your situation with a medical professional familiar with your insurance coverage. 

Hope this is a hypothetical only and you you actually don't have this dreaded virus. Treatments are very effective now, so if you do have Hep C, we at this forum want you treated as soon as possible, and hope you will inform our audience as to what you learn from the medical insurance experts.
