Enter the percentages of members/beneficiaries by plan type to calculate the estimated number of patients with hepatitis C. This model uses the following percentages in its calculations:


PREVALENCE BY PLAN TYPE:
Commercial   0.47%
Medicare   0.31%
Dual Eligible Medicare/Medicaid   2.91%
Medicaid   0.87%

If you have multiple lines of business, consider modeling each population separately if different rules around access apply.

* Note that the prevalence rate for the United States is approximately 1% (1.05%) but this is driven largely by three populations not included in this model: Uninsured (2.08%), Veterans Affairs (5.4%); and Prison (30.0%).
