Nurx is committed to making STI testing more affordable and accessible, regardless of whether you have health insurance.
With health insurance, each test kit costs $75 plus the $15 consultation fee and any applicable copays or deductibles. The consultation fee provides patients with unlimited access to the Nurx medical team regarding their STI results.
Without health insurance, Basics Covered costs $150; Healthy Woman costs $190, and Full Control costs $220. These prices include the kit, the lab testing, and shipping both ways. Patients will also pay a $15 medical consultation fee, which includes unlimited access to a Nurx medical provider regarding their STI testing, results, and any follow-up care.

If you pay with insurance, your out-of pocket-expense will depend on whether our partner lab, Molecular Testing Labs, is in-network with your insurance and on your specific plan’s coverage. Once you’ve submitted your samples, MTL will then bill your insurance for the lab services – and you will only be responsible for any out of pocket costs. Please check here to see if your insurance is in-network: What insurance plans have Molecular Testing Labs in-network?
*BLUECROSS OF CALIFORNIA OR COVERED CALIFORNIA PATIENTS PLEASE NOTE: Though these plans are in-network with the Molecular Testing Labs, we’ve found that some of our patients have had these plans deny the testing and leave the bill to the patient. We encourage you to contact your insurance to ask if Molecular Testing Labs is an acceptable lab with your insurance plan, and that they will have no issues with the lab testing being processed in Oregon which is where the lab is located.
If your insurance is out-of-network with Molecular Testings Labs then you will be billed a negotiated rate of $99 for lab testing and the lab will bill you directly.
If you have any questions about insurance coverage for laboratory testing, please call your insurance company and ask them the following questions:
- Is Molecular Testing Labs in-network?
- Do I have a deductible for lab testing?
- Do I have a copay or co-insurance associated with my insurance plan?
- If they ask which lab tests will be ordered please refer to the chart below to see what is included in each kit:
