Maybe they get reimbursed? Sounds dumb since it is part of a police investigation Lol.

Not everyone ha insurance though, so if that's the case they have to pay out of pocket!

O.o its a process performed in an er to father evidence. Such as semen, skin cells, bruising, tears, etc. it is all done by a medical doctor. It helps in the investigation

A rape kit is when they investigate u at the hospital it's really an invasive process and can be extremely embarrassing ESPECIALLY to someone who has just been traumatized! They check for fluids, they use a comb to check your cubic area for fibers /hairs etc many other things to that I won't go into
