Life insurance

I got tested for HIV for life insurance. What would happen if they detected the HIV virus?

I don't know about the US policy but here in Australia some insurance companies refuse to insure you if you are Hiv+ or have cancer.Very sad indeed.

They would notify you of the results and then you would have to discuss your policy with them.  Each company is different whether they would provide coverage or not.
