A false positive is a negative test,. Depending on the test used there are so many factors that can result in a patient receiving a false positive, at one point it could be as simple as having had your Hepatitis B vaccination or the flu. This Pt does not have HIV and it should be treated with caution to ensure that this patient is not misdiagnosed as having HIV because it is difficult to correct a personâ€™s medical record. At best if you are coding for a counseling visit for behavior, if the Pt fits the criteria for high-risk sexual behavior you can use V69.2, but if this is for the test itself I would suggest using V73.98 for screening exam for viral disease.
