Laboratories are responsible for reporting ALL CD4 T-Cell test results (not just those less than 200/ul or less than 14%), as well as any HIV-indicative test – including all viral loads (even if undetectable) and confirmed antibody tests – to the Health Officer of the local health jurisdiction where the health care provider facility is located. The Health Officer’s designee – HIV Epidemiology Program – will follow-up with health care providers for laboratory reports you send to us to complete the HIV/AIDS registry.
Health care providers are responsible for providing the client's full name, date of birth, and gender when submitting laboratory requisitions for any test used to identify HIV, a component of HIV, or antibodies or antigens to HIV.via L.A. County Department of Public Health Epidemiology Program
