Feministe » Apparently, Texas Does NOT Charge Victims for Rape Kits.

Well, it seems like it was all a big misunderstanding, and I got taken in, too. According to the Texas Association Against Sexual Assault, local law enforcement absorbs the initial cost, up to $700, and is then reimbursed by the state. Further costs are absorbed by the hospital or the law enforcement agency, but the victim’s insurance is not billed.

That’s a relief. But what about Wasilla, Alaska?
