By | Leave a Comment

A proposed rule change would allow patients afflicted with Hepatitis C access to medications prior to exhibiting fibrosis or liver damage. In addition, $ 10 million were allocated to expand Medicaid Hep C services beginning fiscal year 2019, which begins in July.

This is in line with overall efforts of Gov. Phil Murphy to expand coverage for the state’s vulnerable residents which includes $ 4.3 billion in state funding for Medicaid.
