FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Where can I get tested for HIV?

Is HIV/STD testing free?
HIV testing is billed to your insurance. If you are uninsured, our financial counselors will help you apply for insurance.

How long does it take to get test results?
You receive results within 30-45 minutes.

Is testing confidential?
Yes, all HIV testing and records are kept confidential.  HIV case management, however, does release some identifying information such as data of birth to the Boston Public Health Commission for reporting purposes.
