If you have good health insurance and go through your own physician.

  • Make an appointment at least 2 weeks before the fight. Usually, using your own physician is really slow to receive the results.
  • Make sure they test for HIV. This is uncommon in many areas, so they usually do not test for it.
  • Make sure the test they do for Hep B is Hepatitis B (HBV) Surface Antigen Screen (HBsAg). It is common for physicians to do the antibody screen instead. The OAC will only accept the results of HBsAg
  • Make sure the test they do for Hep C is Hepatitis C (HCV) Antibody (HCV Ab, anti-HCV). Sometimes physicians will test for immunity instead. The OAC will no longer accept the results of immunity tests.
