Testing & Treatment

You have options.

Contact your healthcare provider or a local healthcare clinic.

View list of Whitman County Healthcare Clinics below. Do not go to the emergency room for STD testing or treatment.

Most providers charge a fee for testing, but health insurance may cover the cost. If you don’t have insurance, ask about fees first. Other testing options include at-home test kits, which can be ordered online.
