If you have SAS 9.2 you can use the COVTEST statement in GLIMMIX.
proc glimmix data=a;
model late_hiv_testing(event="1")=/link=logit dist=binary ddfm=bw
covtest 'Ho: No random effects' ZeroG; * tests if G matrix can be
reduced to a 0 matrix;
As an aside, I might be tempted to put zipcode in a class statement.
But I don't know enough about your data to say one way or the other.
