STI Testing 

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) young people aged 15-24 make up half of all new STI diagnoses each year. It is recommended that all sexually active individuals be screened at least once a year for STIs. Depending on your sexual practices, your healthcare provider may recommend more frequent testing. UHCS offers onsite STI testing.

STI testing cost

There are a few different ways to pay for STI testing.

  • NUSHP (Blue Cross Blue Shield) covers the cost of STI testing at UHCS
  • For health insurance plans other than NUSHP, contact your insurance provider to obtain a cost estimate for STI testing. Confirm with your insurance provider that Baystate Reference Labs is in network.
  • *Self-pay
  • Free testing is available for those who are affected by sexual violence
  • Local testing sites outside of Northeastern

*Students may opt to self-pay to protect your privacy from your insurance policy holder (often a parent).

If you would like to self-pay: Gonorrhea and Chlamydia are tested together and cost $25. HIV Testing costs $25. Syphilis Testing costs $25. Payment must be made prior to testing. UHCS accepts major credit cards, debit cards and non-food related Husky dollars.

You can also seek testing at local clinics in Boston that offer free STI testing.

Massachusetts Immunization Information System (MIIS)   Massachusetts law (M.G.L. c. 111, Section 24M) requires providers to report immunization information to a computerized immunization registry known as the Massachusetts Immunization Information System (MIIS). 

  • The MIIS stores immunization records for you and your clinician and can help prevent outbreaks of disease like measles and the flu. 
  • All information in the MIIS is kept secure and confidential. 
  • The MIIS allows information to be shared with health care providers, boards of public health and state agencies concerned with immunization. 
  • You have the right to object to the sharing of your immunization information across providers in the MIIS. If you object, please complete this form and bring it to your appointment or submit it to uhcs@northeastern.edu.  
  • For more information, visit the MIIS website at www.mass.gov/dph/miis or contact the Massachusetts Immunization Program MIIS Help Desk directly at 617-983-4335.
