Trichomoniasis is a sexually transmitted infection caused by a parasitic microorganism. In women, symptoms can include vaginal itching, odor and a green or yellow discharge. In men, symptoms can include urethral burning and itching. It is easily treated with antibiotics.

Typical costs:

  • For patients covered by health insurance, out-of-pocket costs for trichomoniasis treatment typically consist of a doctor visit copay of $5-$30 or more and a prescription drug copay of $10-$85 or more, depending on the plan and whether the drug is generic, preferred or non-preferred. Trichomoniasis treatment typically is covered by health insurance.
  • For patients not covered by health insurance, the cost of trichomoniasis diagnosis typically includes a doctor visit and laboratory test. And treatment typically costs $20-$25 for a generic antibiotic or $45-$125 for a brand-name antibiotic, depending on the brand and the dose.
  • For example, GetSTDTested.com charges $90 for a trichomoniasis test[1] . Drugstore.com charges about $20 for a one-week course of generic 250 mg metronidazole and about $80 for the brand-name equivalent Flagyl. Or, for an alternative dosing regimen, Drugstore.com charges about $25 for a one-time 2-gram dose of metronidazole and about $125 for the same amount of Flagyl. And Drugstore.com charges about $45 for a 2-grams dose of the brand-name drug Tindamax.

What should be included:
  • Trichomoniasis typically is diagnosed with a laboratory test. It usually is treated with the antibiotic metronidazole[2] (brand name Flagyl), taken either as a 2-gram, one-time dose or at 250 mg three times per day for a week. Or, it can be treated with the antibiotic, tinidazole[3] (brand name Tindamax) at a one-time dose of 2 grams.
  • The National Institutes of Health has an overview[4] of trichomoniasis.
Additional costs:
  • Treatment typically is recommended for the infected person's sexual partners even if they do not have symptoms.
Discounts:
  • The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services offers a locator[5] for clinics with sliding fee scales based on income.
  • Some drug manufacturers offer patient assistance programs. Any patient without prescription drug coverage who also is not eligible for Medicare typically qualifies for Together Rx Access[6] , a discount card that offers 25% -40% percent off many brand-name drugs.
Shopping for trichomoniasis treatment:
  • A family doctor, gynecologist or urologist can diagnose and prescribe treatment for trichomoniasis. The American Medical Association offers a doctor locator[7] . The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists offers a gynecologist locator[8] . And the American Urological Association offers a urologist locator[9] . Planned Parenthood offers a health center locator[10] .
