How much does UTI testing and medication cost?
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are common and are usually easily treated with antibiotics. But first you must visit your health care provider to be sure it’s a UTI. If it is, you’ll get a prescription for an antibiotic. In general, UTI testing and treatment is considered routine, and will be covered by most insurance providers. The costs of the visit and treatment vary from community to community, based on regional and local expenses. Costs may be less depending on your income at some family planning centers, such as Planned Parenthood. Call ahead of time to find out what the cost will be. It’s important to treat a UTI as soon as possible, because if left untreated it can cause kidney infection.
