Our routine HIV testing e-Inquiry service

2013 guidelines from the USPS Task Force recommend all persons aged 15 to 65 undergo routine testing regardless of perceived risk.  Individualized expert case consultation on HIV testing questions is available for healthcare providers through the CCC’s HIV e-Inquiry Service. Providers can initiate a consultation by emailing us at hivtesting@nccc.ucsf [hyperlink]. A CCC clinician will help you with questions that arise from HIV testing in your practice by responding to your testing email inquiry within two business days. Please do not include any patient-identifying information should you choose to contact us through email.

Testing questions can also be submitted through our online case submission system, or for urgent inquiries, reach a clinician directly by phone at (800) 933-3413.
