Notice of coverage for HIV testing under Original Medicare
Effective January 1, 2010, Original Medicare began covering HIV testing under Preventive Services at 100%. Under Original Medicare, annual voluntary HIV screening is covered for members at increased risk for HIV infection per U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) guidelines.
Also with Original Medicare, voluntary HIV screening of pregnant members is covered when the diagnosis of pregnancy is known, during the third trimester, and at labor.
Coverage for HIV testing as a HAP Senior Plus member
As a HAP Senior Plus member, you have always had access to unlimited HIV testing. There is no copay for HIV screening. Your office visit or facility copay may apply.
The USPSTF is an independent panel of experts in primary care and prevention that systematically reviews the evidence of effectiveness and develops recommendations for clinical preventive services.
