    The news that maybe it is not cost effective to treat all HCV patients with triple therapy (Incivek regimen) should be balanced by the growing support for one time HCV screening in all baby boomers. There was a story on NBC Nightly news about the silent HCV epidemic in this age group and the need for screening. Remember, 1 in 3 boomers are HCV positive and at least half do not know it.
