#WorldHepatitisDay is July 28

Getting tested for hepatitis can help you learn if you are infected, so you can access available lifesaving care and treatment. Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver often caused by a virus. There are vaccinations and effective treatments for some types of hepatitis. It is important to know your status because many people do not know they have the virus. If you were born between 1945 and 1965, get tested for Hepatitis C today.

July is Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month

Children and adolescents can get arthritis, too. It happens when their immune system affects their joints and is called juvenile arthritis. Early signs of juvenile arthritis may be noticed by parents and grandparents as swollen joints, fever, or sudden rash and often are mistaken for normal problems of childhood. But, juvenile arthritis is more serious than that. Ask your child's doctor about juvenile arthritis to learn more.

The health care law requires all people to have minimum essential coverage or pay a fee. American Indians, Alaska Natives, and people eligible for services through IHS, tribal programs, or urban Indian health programs can get an exemption to the fee by applying through the Marketplace or when filing their federal income tax return.
