Insurance Results
Nov 22, 2005

Hi There, you have a wonderful site which has provided me with so much information!

Recently my partner and I applied for life insurance coverage. His application was declined because his blood tests indicated that he was HIV +, mine was approved. We had no idea he was infected so that was quite a shock to us. Our applications were submitted together as joint applicants "Life Partners".

My question is, how indepth would they have gone on my blood tests, in other words would they have tested the blood with every possible test to determine if I had very recently been infected.

Thank You!

Response from Ms. Franzoi

I would think so because you applied jointly and your partner tested positive. But I can't say that definitely. If you are concerned about your status, you might want to get an anonymous HIV test.
