FAQs


How much does it cost?
We accept insurance, but if you are uninsured, cost is based on a sliding scale.  Be sure to bring with you proof of income (last two paycheck stubs).  There is no charge for services for teens.  Services are not denied based on inability to pay.

If I am a teen, do I need my parent’s permission for services?
Due to Federal law, teens can receive confidential reproductive health services without parental permission.  We do encourage teens to involve their parent/guardian in their health care choices.
