  • Have ever injected illegal drugs, even if you experimented a few times many years ago
  • Received a blood transfusion or solid organ transplant before July, 1992
  • Received a blood product for clotting problems produced before 1987
  • Have ever been on long-term kidney dialysis
  • Have evidence of liver disease (e.g., persistently abnormal ALT levels)
