Nurx’s services make it easy for anyone, regardless of circumstance, to get medication quickly, discreetly, and affordably.
Founded by Hans Gangeskar and Dr. Edvard Engesæth, Nurx’s team is comprised of world-class physicians, business leaders, and industry experts.
Patients can choose from one of Nurx’s STI home testing kits. There are three tests available: The Basics Covered Kit, Full Control Kit, and the Healthy Woman Kit.
The Basics Covered Kit is designed for people who have completed comprehensive testing within the past year and would just like a check-up. The kit checks for HIV, chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis.
The Full Control Kit includes a comprehensive set of tests for both men and women who haven’t been tested before or in more than a year. The kit tests for HIV, chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, and Hepatitis C.
The Healthy Woman Kit’s tests look for infections most likely to affect female bodies. The kit tests for HIV, chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, and trichomoniasis.
Nurx’s mission is to make STI testing more affordable and accessible to everyone (whether you have insurance or not). Nurx’s site states that with health insurance, each test kit costs $75 plus the $15 consultation fee and any applicable copays or deductibles.
Without health insurance, the Basics Covered costs $150, the Healthy Woman costs $190, and the Full Control costs $220. These prices include the kit, lab testing, and shipping both ways.
Patients should keep in mind that if paying with insurance, Molecular Testing Labs will bill the cost of the lab testing to the patient’s insurance provider (does not include the price at checkout). Any out of pocket costs after the insurance is billed will depend on whether the insurance provider is in-network with the lab and your specific plan’s coverage.
Nurx test kits are analyzed at the company’s partner laboratory, Molecular Testing Labs (MTL). According to Nurx’s site, MTL is a state-of-the-art lab that specializes in complex molecular testing and is CAP-accredited.
Molecular Testing Labs is also CLIA-approved, achieving the United States government’s standards of quality and safety under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments.
Currently, Nurx is not available to residents of the following states:
Unfortunately, Nurx is currently unable to send home test kits to our patients in New York due to legislation that does not allow at-home collection and testing.
Patients can sign up via email if they’d like to be notified of when the company is available to send testing kits to their state.
Patients will have to pay an extra $15 for their medical consultation. The $15 allows users to message Nurx’s medical team for a year about their tests or results. While this isn’t an outrageous cost, some companies offer free consultation services.
