Question:  So I’m 15 years old and I want to be put on birth control because me and my boyfriend are sexually active. Do I have to have my mom be there to get the implant if I have insurance?

Answer:  While we do encourage family involvement, your parent does not have to be present for you to get any form of birth control, including the implant.  You can also begin your chosen birth control method with, or without health insurance.  However, there may be an Explanation of Benefits with the services completed sent to the insurance account holder (i.e. your parent), so if you have concerns about confidentiality, make sure to bring that up at your appointment so that we can respect your privacy.
