“Hello, I’m curious about eligibility and HIPPA. I’m working part time, going to school and am on my parents’ insurance. Could I be examined and buy birth control without using the insurance or having my parents find out? I have read about the sliding scale payments but want to make sure I am eligible and I want to make sure nothing turns up on the insurance statement.”
A: Family Planning provides confidentiality. A patient does not need parental consent to get on birth control. Our fees are based off of a sliding fee scale. This varies depending on a persons income. A patient can request not to have the cost submitted to their insurance.
Last night me and my boyfriend had intercourse and when we were done he told me that the condom had broke… i thought he was just playing around like he does sometimes but he was being serious… it broke when he was inside of me and didn’t feel it till after he was done…. what are the chances that i could be pregnant”
I just asked u a question but i was also wondering how much an abortion is and can i get it without my parents knowing?
A: As for your first question, its difficult to say. Since this just happened last night, it sounds like you would be a candidate for the morning after pill. It would be advisable to contact a clinic near you immediately. For the second part of your question, please look in the ‘ask the educator” archives as this question has been addressed previously.
Family Planning operates on a sliding fee scale according to income and family size. The cost of the morning after pill will vary depending on each person’s situation. If you are 17 or older, Plan B can be purchased from most pharmacies in your area.
