The Affordable Care Act makes it mandatory that insurance plans cover the cost of sexual health testing at 100%. If you choose to file to private or student insurance you will not be charged at the Davison Health Center. However many students wish to pay out of pocket for services and the discount pricing below can be charged to your student account as "miscellanous lab fee".
