How can a negative HIV test affect a person's insurance premiums?

I'm a health care professional, and I recently read on a physician's blog that a negative HIV test on your health record may affect life or health insurance premiums.

Term Life Insurance

We've talked about Health Insurance a few times - what about Term Life Insurance? I'm +40 years old with two kids and would like a bit more insurance than my job provides (basically 1 year salary). Should I go with a place like Reliaquote and just pick the best offer? Or is there a better approach?
