Urgent Care Billing

I just got a bill from an urgent care clinic I visited for irregular bleeding.  

This is what they billed my insurance:

Outpatient visit $166

Urine pregnancy test $48 (!!)

Urinalysis $36

Candida screening $143

another vaginal screening $133

Trichomoniasis $134

Chlamydia $225

Gonorrhea $211
--------------------------
$1096!

 I told her I wasn't pregnant.  She said the required the test.  I told her I wasn't at risk for STDs and she said they strongly advise a screening.  No wonder why!  They make so much money from this!  

Thank goodness insurance covered all but my $35 copay and an additional $40 visit fee (I'm calling about that ASAP.  Why should I be billed twice for the visit when it's a copay visit?)
