    I recently have been diagnosed with herpes and i don’t want anyone in my family to know. I am still on my moms insurance and was wondering if there is any way i can still get medicine for my herpes without her knowing or having to use any insurance.

    Hi Renee, I totally get that! Can you check with Walmart and ask what the cost is for acyclovir?
    It’s a generic.

    Hi, beachgal, thanks for replying. I haven’t tried walmart yet but wouldn’t I need a doctor to prescribe it to me? I guess I just don’t know where to begin…or where to go to get the proper care I need without my family knowing.

    @renee25, I know you posted originally two years ago. If anyone else searches for this same topic, here’s a potential solution.
    Near me, there are several physician’s assistant clinics, in drug stores, grocery stores, and some regular after-hour but not critical care physicians. The cost is relatively low at the drugstore PA offices, about $40-$80 for a visit. Don’t file for insurance, pay cash. You can even go to one in another town if you’re worried about someone seeing you there. This shouldn’t alert your parents or their insurance at all.
    Explain your problem, that you’ve been diagnosed with herpes and need a prescription, but do not want it to go on your parent’s insurance. Acyclovir is about the cheapest anti-viral. Get a prescription and shop around – there are apps to help you find the cheapest drug prices for your prescription. Altogether, you should come out at somewhere in the neighborhood of $60-$120, depending on the clinic and pharmacy.
