Abstract

Morbidity and mortality associated with viral hepatitis, especially hepatitis C, are expected to increase rapidly over the next 2 decades. Many MCOs view hepatitis as a high-cost disease with a relatively low incidence; the incentive to develop education or awareness programs for hepatitis is correspondingly low. The American Gastroenterological Association, the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, and the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases have, through the American Digestive Health Foundation, developed a unique, proactive, and flexible educational initiative for managed care. After providing an overview of hepatitis, this paper describes the four phases of this program designed to increase hepatitis awareness among managed care providers and members.
