Abstract

Claims data between 2003 and 2007 were used to estimate the direct medical cost per case of chlamydial infections. Estimated total cost per episode for those who were treated was $142 (male, $157; female, $141). This estimate does not include intangible cost, lost productivity, and the cost of potential sequelae.
