Question: I recently got the Nexplanon implant in December of 2018 at age 18. It lasts 3 years so I’m due to get it out when I’m 21 and I’ll be in college. When it is time for it to be taken out and replaced can I go back to family planning to do this with no cost?
Answer: If you are not interested in applying or using insurance, Family Planning assesses cost based off of family size and household income. FPA does not refuse services if a client is issued a bill and is unable to pay. We graciously accept donations as well.
Question: I have the implant and I lost my card can I schedule an appointment to get it taken out? Would like this done within the next month?
Answer: The implant (Nexplanon) provides three years of pregnancy protection but can be removed at anytime. Please call the Painesville clinic (352-0608) or Ashtabula clinic (992-5953) to schedule an appointment to remove the device.
Question: How much does Implanon or Mirena cost if my insurance doesn’t cover it?
