  • Confidential vs. Anonymous HIV Testing

    Confidential Testing means that your name and other identifying information will be attached to your test results. The results will go in your medical record at Olin Health Center and may be shared with your healthcare providers and your insurance company. Your results can be disclosed to additional individuals ONLY if you grant written permission. There is a charge for Confidential HIV testing at Olin Health Center when it is done as part of a medical office visit.

    Anonymous Testing means that nothing ties your test results to you.  When you take an anonymous HIV test, you get a unique identifier number that allows you to get your test results. Anonymous HIV testing is currently suspended for the Fall 2020 semester.

     

    The difference between an anonymous test and a confidential test is how the results are documented.

  • 1. Confidential HIV Testing during a clinic visit

    During a routine primary care visit, your provider may give you the option to be tested for HIV. HIV testing is routinely offered to patients in college as part of regular health care. If you choose to be tested during your primary care visit, the testing will be confidential, but not anonymous. There will be a charge for the HIV test, and results are generally available in 2-5 business days.

    To schedule a primary care visit, please call (517) 353-4660.
