 (4)(f) Insurers must maintain strict confidentiality regarding medical test results with respect to exposure to HIV infection or a specific sickness or medical condition derived from such exposure. The insurer may not disclose information regarding specific test results outside of the insurance company, except to the person tested and to the persons designated in writing by the person tested. The insurer may not furnish specific test results for exposure to the HIV infection to an insurer industry data bank if the information may identity the individual and the specific test results.

(5) An insurer of a group policy or insurer of an individual health insurance policy may not exclude coverage of an eligible individual because of a positive HIV test or a specific medical condition derived from HIV/AIDS.
