MLIve Michigan (05.21.2013)

Beginning June 3, Jackson County, Mich., will begin charging county residents $10 and non-county residents $40 to receive services at its STD clinic. According to county officials, the program has been operating at a $100,000 loss; Jackson is one of the few counties in the state that does not charge for STD testing. As a result of this, the department has seen an increase in non-county and out-of-state individuals using the clinic.
