Periodically, BioCollections, a research group from Miami participates in studies regarding HCV. In exchange for donation of your blood to be used for research, they provide you with free testing.
At this time, they are doing viral load (PCR) & Genotype tests at no cost to you. Results will take from 4-12 weeks and results will be sent to the Chance Center. Chance Center authorized personnel will direct you as to how you get your results (I'm not sure if they call you, or if you have to call them at a certain date). These tests would cost an uninsured person approximately $1200. If you are interested, please call the number above to schedule an appt.
