As a service to IDSA members who are interested in outreach to their primary care partners, the Society is offering a one-time mailing announcing the USPSTF’s recent Final Recommendation on HCV screening. IDSA members can submit up to 25 primary care office addresses to receive a tailored-letter, linked below, which will promote the screening recommendation and identify the IDSA member as a provider of HCV care.
The letter is intended to foster appropriate care coordination for patients diagnosed with HCV between their primary care provider and their ID physician.
