Comal County Public Health Department Plans to Raise STD Testing Costs

STD Testing Cost Increase

Comal County Increase STD Testing Cost

Comal County Public Health Department plans to increase the cost of STD testing services provided by them in New Braunfels, Texas. The price increases were approved on Thursday by Comal County commissioners.

Gwen Mills the public Health Director asked for the increase stating that state labs are charging more so the price increases are needed.

There may be a trend of this happening across the nation.  Everybody knows that in these bad economic times that there is less money to fund public health programs such as STD and HIV testing. Free and low cost testing is becoming  difficult to find for people in need of these services.
