How much will services cost: In California, most reproductive health services are covered by Medi-Cal or Family PACT, so there would be no cost to you. Family Pact is a state program that gives people access to family planning and reproductive health care services. We can sign you up for Family PACT when you come in for your visit, if needed. However, there may be some tests, medications or other services that the medical staff feel are important for you that are not covered by Family PACT or Medi-Cal, so there would be a charge to you. Cost of services is based on a sliding fee scale.

If you're covered by private insurance, you may use your insurance to help pay for the visit. In California, if you are covered under another person's health plan—like your parent's or spouse's—you have the right to keep your insurance claim confidential by submitting a Confidential Communication Request form. You can learn more about this at: myhealthmyinfo.org.
