Disclosing Your Hepatitis C Status

Some questions that arise when diagnosed with hepatitis C are related to disclosure: who, what, when, how? Though the choice is personal, not informing some people may lead to moral or legal complications at a later date.

Hiding it from the insurance company may result in unavailability of disability or life insurance; a partner may sue for having been put a risk to HCV. On the other hand, disclosing a positive HCV status could result in isolation both in public and private life due to the stigma.

If you do decide to reveal your status, prepare yourself. Some will support you, some will discriminate. Relationships will be transformed. Be ready to answer questions related to transmission of HCV and risks to people you interact with, particularly children. Clarify how it does not spread by physical contact or sharing food and drinks and why sexual transmission is not a high risk. Share information. Give time to people close to you to accept and respond.

Is there any particular way of revealing the information? To children, for instance, the extent of information shared will depend on their ability to comprehend, their age, and your condition.Be truthful yet reassuring. Teach them to be safe and not use or share others’ razors or toothbrushes.

With partners in long term committed relationships, it is preferable to be frank and open. Though the risk of HCV through sexual relationship is low, (almost nil in case of monogamous long term heterosexual relationship), other issues such as trust are equally important. Do get to know the other person better before you disclose your HCV status.

Health care professionals are prohibited from disclosing your HCV status without your approval by Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. Inform the insurance company if insurance is paying for your treatment.

Disclosures on social media are neither warranted nor advisable. Join a support group, but exercise caution about what you share on public forums if you value your privacy.
