How Much Is a Herpes Test?

Category: 

Medical testing can be expensive. However it is important to note that the benefits of getting properly diagnosed can greatly outnumber the sacrifices you might have to take in order to incur the cost of testing. It is also important to consider getting tested with service providers who can guarantee validated results otherwise your results might not be reliable. Getting tested for herpes will have varying costs depending on the method used to get tested. If you are covered by insurance then you will most likely not be charged for any type of STD test or have a co-pay of around 30 dollars. For patients not covered by health insurance the typical cost of a herpes test can vary between 50 and 200 dollars. There are also options such as community clinics where STD testing can be performed for free or at discounted rates.
