cost of lab test
Nov 6, 2012

I have no health insurance.How much it cost to me to measure CD4 ,viral load and to check type of HIV virus ?Infected most probably august 1st by risky sexual activity.

Response from Dr. Young


Seems like the very first thing to do is to get a HIV test. You can often and usually obtain a free HIV test from a variety of centers. Many AIDS service organizations (ASOs) provide this test confidentially and at no cost.

Only if the HIV test is positive should you get (and pay for) a CD4 and HIV viral load test.

Be well, BY
