Answer:   Anyone 13 or older can schedule an appointment at Family Planning, with or without parental consent.  However, we always encourage the involvement of mom, dad or a general support system.

Please keep in mind, if you plan to use private insurance, your family may see Family Planning Services on their insurance invoice.
