 Does being tested for std’s cost money?

It depends. Cost can vary based on what infections you’re tested for and where you get tested. A health care provider can help you figure out what tests make the most sense for you, based on things like whether you have any symptoms, what your sexual practices are, and whether you live in an area with high rates of infection.

Some clinics and health centers might be able to offer free or low-cost STD testing. Planned Parenthood works to make health care accessible and affordable. Some health centers are able to charge according to income, and most accept health insurance. If you qualify, Medicaid or other state programs may lower your health care costs. Contact your local Planned Parenthood health center to ask about specific costs, and to schedule an appointment to get tested.
