The tests included in this reflex panel are recommended to guide the selection (and, for some patients, duration) of antiviral treatment.1 However, only about half of patients have had confirmatory HCV testing by the time of their first visit to an HCV treatment provider, and an even lower proportion have had quantitative RNA and genotype results.2 The reflex approach should improve the proportion of patients who have this complete series of important HCV assay results. 

If Hepatitis C Antibody is reactive then Hepatitis C Viral RNA Quantitative, Real PCR will be performed at an additional charge (CPT code(s):87522).
