It all depends. There may be a range of low-cost services available to you at your local health center and for some patients, there are no-cost services.

The price for services at Planned Parenthood depends on many different factors, like:

  • The health care service you need
  • What kind of  health insurance you have — if any, including Medicaid
  • The services your insurance plan covers
  • The amount of funding the health center receives
  • The options the health center has to help cover the cost of your visit
  • How much money you make

There are definitely situations in which your Planned Parenthood visit might be totally free. Your visit could cost you nothing, depending on the service you need and your health insurance plan, if you’re insured. 

Most health insurance plans must cover 100% of the costs of preventive care — like birth control, STD testing, cancer screenings, and wellness visits — with no copay or out-of-pocket costs to you. If you don’t have insurance or your insurance doesn’t cover the cost of your visit, the health center might use a sliding scale, which means it would figure out the price depending on how much money you make.

The Trump administration forced Planned Parenthood out of the Title X program, which provided funds for patients to get free or low-cost services. The Biden administration is working on changing this so that Planned Parenthood health centers will be able to provide affordable health care to even more people.

We believe everyone deserves access to affordable, high-quality health care. If you’re worried about costs, talk with the staff at your local Planned Parenthood. They’ll do everything they can to help you get the care you need at a price you can afford.
