U.S. Task Force to Endorse Routine HIV Tests

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force is expected to endorse routine HIV testing, Reuters reports. The health panel would make its recommendation available for public comment by the end of this year. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the American College of Physicians and the HIV Medicine Association have already called for routine HIV testing. However, since the Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. health care reform) requires health care insurers to implement recommendations by the task force for preventive services, routine HIV testing in the United States would become reality.

"The health panel would make its recommendation available for public comment by the end of this year." The only comment the public should have is "WHAT TOOK SO LONG!?" Goodness.
