AIDS Tests Watch
I've heard having an AIDS test can affect your chances of getting life insurance. Is this rubbish, or true? I thought they were confidential, so I don't see how it could affect things...
Anyway, if someone is better informed than I, pray do tell.
if you get an HIV test at a GUM clinic it is totally anonymous and confidential even your GP will not know unless you want him to... so the insurance company will never know... unless of course you tell them.
It used to affect your insurance rating, I don't know if it does anymore though because of various anti-discrimination laws and whatnot. I'd still recommend going to the GUM clinic though rather than your GP as if you use your regular doctor it will be noted in your medical records.
