Red ribbon with words to the right that read the risk is not knowing to get tested

Confidential HIV Testing

The CDC recommends routine HIV screening for all Americans aged 15 to 65 – not just those deemed to be “at risk.” It is estimated that over 1.1 million people are HIV positive in America and 1 in 6 don’t know they are infected. The first step is getting tested!

Health Services offers confidential HIV testing through 2 different methods:

  • A venipuncture (blood draw). The blood sample is sent to our outsource laboratory, Quest Diagnostics, for testing. Results are normally available within 2 days.  Cost: $10
  • INSTI® HIV-1/HIV-2 Rapid Antibody test conducted via  a simple fingerstick.  The test yields results in as little as 60 seconds and is 99.8% accurate. Cost: $12

HIV test results become part of your confidential medical record. Information from a person’s medical record can only be released with a signed Release of Medical Information Form, except as required by law and/or court order.
