BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Everyone loves a discount — especially in Boca — so know now that Palm Beach County is dropping the price of STD testing at public clinics.
The Palm Beach County Commission “adopted a resolution amending the Florida Department of Health Palm Beach County’s fee schedule reducing the rates to the self-pay uninsured population for treatment of sexually transmitted diseases (STD) and medical and laboratory services. Patients are currently charged $159. The new rates are $58.02 for new patients and $48.84 for existing patients.”
This comes as great news to doctors throughout Boca who report no income and receive financial aid at area private schools.
Oh wait, did we say that out loud?
