  • I understand that my referral may be refused by the physician to whom I am referred based on his/her judgment.  Possible reasons for refusal may include the physician’s judgment that my testing is inappropriate or that my request may be beyond the score of the services that are offered or available.
  • I understand that to have my specimen collected, or, in some states, may include having a phlebotomist come to me for sample collection, that I will be required to visit a certified laboratory to be tested, which will usually be close to my location
  • I understand that if my request for a referral is made in the states of New York (NY), New Jersey (NJ), and Rhode Island (RI), the laws of these states require that the lab required that any fees for my testing be paid directly to them and that they will be disclosed to me. The website will charge a fee for their services and the preparation and referral to a physician.
  • I understand that additional confirmatory testing may automatically be triggered by some screening tests that could return as positive. Additional fees may be added for this extra testing, but the website will cover these costs at no additional charge to me.  I understand that additional processing time will be required for confirmatory testing.
  • I understand that if I have given proper consent to testing if I requested to be tested for HIV.  All necessary information has been provided and reviewed:
    • HIV is to be tested
    • AIDS is caused by the HIV virus.  Being tested is the only way to know for certain if I have the virus.

  • I understand that in regards to testing for STDs/STIs that there are various incubation periods for individual diseases or infections, which means that after possible infection, there are time frames that need to be waited for prior to getting testing, otherwise tests that should show as positive might not have enough time to do so. I understand the need for retesting in 3 months, 6 months and at one year in specific situations where a latent period might be involved.

  • I understand that the privacy and security of all of my personal health information (PHI) as defined by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 will be treated confidentially.
