Do STD Tests show up on your Medical Record?
This is a great question, and the answer for all our tests is a firm “NO“. Private Testing Center puts a huge emphasis on protecting your privacy. Here’s some of the ways we ensure your testing is discreet:
All Our STD Tests are Confidential
The only personal information we collect from you is your name and date-of-birth. This is only so that we can ensure we match you to the correct appointment slot in the lab. We DO NOT require your address, social security or any other information.
Our Tests do not appear on your Medical Record
All of PTC’s STD Tests do not appear on your Medical Record. While this is our policy, some other STD Testing Providers do not share this policy! If privacy is a concern, please verify that whomever you choose, your test will not appear on your medical record.
It is for this reason that we do not accept insurance. If we submit your claim to the insurance companies, they will become aware you took the test and it will appear on your record, and sometimes insurance companies will raise your rates if you take certain tests or take what they deem “too many”.
We offer Several Options for Discreet Payment
If you pay with a credit or debit card, a charge will appear on your statement from “Private Testing Center, Inc.” However, for a more discreet option, we also accept payments from pre-paid gift cards. This is an option often used by our customers.
These cards are untraceable and are sold at all major retailers like Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, Target and others. Sometimes the cards only come in increments of $25, $50, $100 etc., so purchasing more than one might be necessary. In many cases though, you can load a custom amount onto the card.
We are unable to accept cash as payment.
We Provide your Results Discreetly
Our preferred method for telling your results is verbally, over the phone. We can call you as soon as the results are ready, or if you’d prefer not to give us your phone number, you can call us at 888.248.9002. Another option is we can email, or mail, your results.
All these policies are built with your privacy and protection in mind. Private Testing Center will collect as little personal information as possible, and we’ll always keep this info confidential and discreet. Call us at 888.248.9002 or Schedule Your Test Online.
