HIV Testing

HIV testing will be a part of your medical record. The costs include the lab test plus on office visit charge appropriate for the complexity of each case. We will bill your insurance company.

An hour of your time is needed. Your appointment begins with an educational session covering routes of transmission of HIV, risk factors, ways to protect yourself and an opportunity to ask questions about HIV and sexual health.

You may want to get an HIV test if you:

  • Have engaged in unprotected sex
  • Have had sex with multiple partners
  • Are beginning a new relationship
  • Are planning overseas travel
  • Desire peace of mind

After the initial conversation with the clinician you are sent to the lab for the test. We use the Clear View rapid antibody test for HIV 1 and 2, which requires a finger prick for a blood sample and takes half an hour to process. Your followup appointment is scheduled shortly thereafter. No test result will be given out over the phone.

To schedule an appointment:

  • Call the Student Health Service at 513-529-3000.
  • Request to schedule a HIV test.
  • You will be given an appointment time and arrival instructions.
  • Check in at the front counter with your Miami ID card and insurance card.
