Response from Dr. Young
Thanks for your post.
You don't need to disclose status until employment, or insurance enrollment actually occurs, not before.
I always recommend that my patients give full disclosure of their health status (including HIV) on employment or insurance papers. This does not depend on whether or not you're taking medications. To not disclose comprises fraud and would jeopardize your employment or insurance status. BY
Is there a chance?
