A company that partner’s with Quest Diagnostic’s to provide 'at cost' STD Testing

Rather not go through your private insurance to undergo these kinds of private tests?  You do have another option.

 GetSTDtested.com partner’s with quest diagnostic labs all across the country to provide at cost STD testing.  In reviewing their site you choose which package of STD tests you want done.  You simply type in your zip code to find a quest diagnostics lab nearest you.  They have several STD Testing packages to choose from.  Test results are usually back in 1-3 business days.

STD Package 1 test for: Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, Herpes I, Herpes II, HIV, and Syphilis.  Cost: 245.00
STD Package 2 tests for:  HIV, Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, and Herpes II
Cost: 195.00

My recommended STD test’s for active gay/bisexual men

STD Package 3 tests for: HIV, Syphilis, Hepatitis B, and Hepatitis C
The cost is 195.00, and you just need to choose from the sites individual test options (see below).

This company has been in business for 15 years, and has been featured on NBC and in the Wall Street Journal.  And through their partnership with the American Social Health Association (ASHA), they have certified expert STD counselors on-call 24 hours a day to help you interpret results and discuss any concerns you may have. No appointment is necessary to speak with a counselor. Also included in your package is a free consult with a doctor, but if the DR prescribes any medicine there are additional charges. 

And they are accredited by the Better Business Bureau with an A- rating (see below).



This is just another option for testing I wanted to make you aware of. Still, my recommendation would be to go to hivtest.org and find a FREE testing location near you.
