In brief: Everybody
everybody should be treated for hepatitis C.
There are however certain exceptions in which patients may not be able to be treated due to interactions with other medications, or other unstable medical conditions which would preclude treatment

In brief: Most patients
Most patients with hepatitis c can receive treatment.
If they have decompensated cirrhosis, they are more likely to be a liver transplant candidate. Current standard of care for treamtment requires 2 types of pills, plus shots once per week. Also some patients may have very little liver disease from hep c and want to wait for new treatments.
