Abstract

Between 2001 and 2017, 108133 persons (45.7% of diagnosed cases) were initiated on anti-hepatitis C virus treatment in the Veterans Affairs healthcare system. In 2017, nonphysician clinicians accounted for 22.2% of prescriptions, infectious diseases specialists for 14.9%, and gastroenterologists/hepatologists for 10.3%. In the pre-direct-acting antiviral era, they accounted for 7.2%, 26.7%, and 11.6%, respectively.
