Here is a brief description of this petition:
Hepatitis C affects one in sixty Americans. It can be
physically debilitating and treatment is very expensive.
Despite the debilitating effects of the Hepatitis C virus,
the Social Security Administration denies benefits for
victims of this virus. This petition is to the Commissioner
of Social Security, Mr. Kenneth Apfel, asking for a change
in this policy.
