Good Day Doctors,
I recently waited 12 months and abstained from any risk to HIV. I then got tested for HIV through my Insurance Company. The Insurance company sent my blood(test tube of blood) to a Lab that is licensed by the CLIA and the Lab uses Antibody Testings Certified by the FDA. The test was a blood HIV antibody test. Is the testing by Life Insurance Company on this basis just as accurate as going through a Doctor?

And we're not doctors, but this question we really know. You can put your weight down on the test result, just as if you'd obtained it from a physician.
My boyfriend has the HIV.
