Yes - and our labs are leaders in direct-to-consumer testing. In fact, they’re the same labs that physicians, hospitals and universities use (all CLIA and CAP-approved). The sensitivity and specificity of each lab test (aka the reliability of the results) can be found here.
We are not contracted with insurance companies at this time, although we are generally priced lower than the out-of-pocket costs associated with STD testing. We also take HSA/FSA and can provide a Superbill for you to submit to your insurance company.
If you screen positive (or even if you just have questions), we’re here. You’ll schedule a telemedicine consult and our clinicians will walk you through your results, next steps – and prescribe medication for you and your partner(s), if appropriate. Note that for some STIs, TBD Healthis required by law to report a positive result to the applicable Department of Health.
Every STI has an “stealth phase” after transmission, when the infection is present in the body but at such a low level it can’t be picked up by tests. These are called ‘window periods’, and they’re different for every STD. Because of window periods, and because many STDs are often asymptomatic, it's important to get routinely screened.
