“My period is 3 months late. Took two pregnancy tests but both were negative. But I did have unprotected sex a few times. I don’t have health insurance, so I can’t go to the doctor to get this checked out. Do you think I’m actually pregnant and had false tests? What should I do?”
A: If concerned about pregnancy, we recommend making an appointment at Family Planning for a pregnancy test. The cost will be determined by your family size and income.
“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.
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.
