Where can I get a cheap pregnancy test so that Medicaid can have proof? It costs $25 for a test at the doctors.

Medicaid has to have proof of pregnancy from a doctor in order for me to be able to apply. Is there a place I can go for one cheaper?

  • The dollar store (dollar tree) sells them for a dollar. They detect the same hormones as the really expensive ones as long as you have passed the pt where you missed your period

  • I went to the doctor got my test and they filled out paper work for medicade right there in the office, I was on temp insurance plan until my card came in the mail about 6 weeks later and they backdated all my bills from the date I got the positive pregnancy test.
