    William Wong and quote from story

    Ontarians with chronic hepatitis C can lose up to 20 per cent of their overall income managing their condition, a new study has found.

    Using survey results from 275 patients, the study analyzed the financial burden of chronic hepatitis C (CHC) on patients treated in hospital and community clinics.

    The research team determined that patients treated in hospital hepatitis clinics spent up to five times more out-of-pocket on supporting their CHC needs than those treated in community hepatitis clinics.
