Question: My parents are taking me off their health insurance. I can’t afford health insurance and I can’t qualify for any aid from the government because my parents still file me on their tax returns as a dependent. Am I able to get low cost care? I’m looking into an IUD but they’re really expensive. They said they would not help me with the cost.
Answer: Family Planning Association assess a fee based on family size and income of the household. However, FPA never refuses services based on your ability to pay and encourage you to call to make an appointment to discuss your IUD choices 440-352-0608 (Painesville) or 440-992-5953 (Ashtabula). If you are also interested, please call our Director of Social Services at the Painesville clinic to discuss your Medicaid and/or private insurance options and answer any questions you may have with possible enrollment.
