Repeat Third Trimester HIV Screening

Public Act 100-0265 was signed into law on August 22, 2017. It amended the Perinatal HIV Prevention Act to mandate a repeat opt-out HIV test during the third trimester, ideally by the 36th week of pregnancy, for all pregnant women in Illinois. On October 2, 2017, the Illinois Department of Public Health issued a memo outlining the new testing and reporting requirements. Implementation of this Act is expected by January 1, 2018.
