This toolkit for the National Alliance of State and Territorial AIDS Directors provides a list of diagnosis, procedure, and prescription drug codes to help health departments develop claims data queries to monitor Hepatitis C testing. It also helps health programs use data to identify individuals diagnosed with Hepatitis C, and gives suggestions for examining their services and treatment utilization. Having the ability to analyze claims data can help health departments become more informed when making decisions on public health planning and resource allocation.
