I am a RN and work in a local health department. We utilize Hep C Alliance, Inc. for testing the general public for Hepatitis C. They are an amazing place and always a great resource to give the client. Bruce Burkett is always friendly and welcoming to any questions we may have. The staff is highly qualified and very nice!

The Mid Mo Health Expo was great and the Hep C Alliance did a great job organizing. Will continue to work with them in the future for other health fairs for sure.

My charity, NeedyMeds , has worked with HepC Alliance for a number of years. They have always been very cooperative, responsive, and helpful. Their information is current and helpful. The people we have worked with have been outstanding. I highly recommend them.

Our local health department has partnered with Hep C Alliance, formerly Mo Hep C Alliance, since approx. 2000. Bruce and his staff are always available to provide necessary support in running the program. With this program, we have provided testing, education, and referrals for hundreds of our clients who otherwise would not have been able to be tested. It is a great program!!

Greatly appreciate the education and resources that Hep C Alliance has provided for my family! When my father-in-law was contemplating therapy for his Hep C diagnosis, Hep C Alliance was able to direct us to various funding sources which helped to cover thousands of dollars in copays for oral treatment. After 12 weeks of therapy my father-in-law has been tested, and the virus is already undetectable. Life is good, thanks to the Hep C Alliance!

I am a RN at a local public health agency and I am grateful to the Hepatitis C Alliance program. We are able to offer Hep C testing to clients with risk factors at no charge. This is a much needed service and those of us involved with this program cannot adequately express our gratitude to the Hepatitis C Alliance program. Our clients are very appreciative of the testing as well as the counseling and education that we provide to those that test positive. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

I, and 2 of my student nurses helped draw blood at a health fair sponsored by Hep C Alliance. It was well organized and well attended. In fact it was attended by more than expected I think and they handled it very well. Great thing for the community and of course a good thing for my students.

I was diagnosed with hepatitis c in 2012, during a hectic time in my life. I didn't know how I contracted the disease, what to do about it or how I was going to pay for it. Research told me that treatment would be upwards of 60,000 dollars. I put off further testing, then finally went to SLU to sign up for a drug trial. I was told that I had to be genotype tested, and that this was to be paid for out of pocket. The trial coordinator gave me the number for the HepC Alliance. I called and Bruce called back immediately. He was very reassuring and they were able to cover over 60 percent of the cost. I had the test done and nervously waited. Several weeks later, Bruce called and asked if I had ever undergone treatment- I said no, and he told me that I was one of the rare lucky few who managed to clear it naturally. He told me congratulations and sent me a letter which explained everything in more detail. Since the genotype test was no longer neccessary, I also got a check back for the full amount of the second test. I will always be grateful to this kind man and to this organization for helping me through a very tough time. I cannot thank them enough.
