What can I expect to pay for a visit at Planned Parenthood? 

This depends on the type of health care service you require and your health insurance carrier. If you do not have health insurance, we can offer you services based on our discount fee scale. Our patients find that Planned Parenthood health care fees are very reasonable, especially when compared to other doctors’ offices.

Can I use my health insurance at Planned Parenthood?

Yes! We welcome most major health insurance carriers for billing for reproductive health services (GYN). You will be asked to present your insurance card and pay your co-pay at the time of visit. Some health insurances will require you to notify them of a change in your GYN provider. Call 1-866-600-6886 for more information. 

What if I can’t pay or do not have health insurance?

Planned Parenthood participates in a federal funding program called Title X (10); a program that allows us to supplement birth control, GYN care and other reproductive health services for people who cannot pay full price for health care services. This program does not pay for abortion care. To qualify, we ask all patients seeking services at Planned Parenthood present the most recent four week snapshot of your income (such as recent pay stubs or, if you are unemployed, proof of your unemployment benefits or inability to work). This helps our staff determine what amount you can pay under Title X’s discounted fee scale.

Additionally, Planned Parenthood can help you sign-up for other programs that will help pay for your services including Medicaid or the Family Planning Benefit Program (FPBP). Call 1-866-600-6886 to see how you can apply.

Cash, credit card, certified check or Medicaid and/or your private insurance are the only ways to pay for abortion care at a Planned Parenthood health center in New York State.

What is Title X and the discounted fee scale?

Title X is a federal program that guarantees the right to family planning services regardless of a patient's ability to pay for them. The government provides money to family planning clinics, like Planned Parenthood, so that people who do not have health insurance can get care at reduced rates, or in some cases free, depending on their family income at the time of their visit. The fairest way for Planned Parenthood to provide services under Title X is to ask all potential patients seeking health care to provide proof of their income (such as pay stubs, child support, or proof of public benefits). This allows us to determine at what level you can pay on the discounted fee scale.

How often do Planned Parenthood’s fees change?

Planned Parenthood will be making changes to its fees as needed, in order to ensure that our fees provide the greatest advantage to all our patients. If you are on Medicaid or other health insurance, these changes will not have an effect on you. If you don’t have Medicaid or other health insurance, you may be eligible for a discount on your visit fees, depending on your income.

Could these changes affect how much I pay?

Yes. After you prove your monthly income, your discount may be larger or smaller than what you received on previous visits. These changes have been made to ensure that discounts are fair and equitable for all. However, if your income falls within the Title X guidelines for a discount, you will receive your health care at a reduced rate.

Why are you asking for proof of my income, residency and social security number? 

Your income determines the Title X discount you will receive today for all family planning services. By checking your income, along with asking a few other questions, we will ensure that you are receiving the largest discount possible. Other information may be needed by Planned Parenthood if you are requesting enrollment in public health programs, such as Medicaid or the Family Planning Benefit Program.

What if I forget my income information at the time of my visit?

Please do not cancel or skip an appointment because you don’t have your income information. We will work with you to get your services discounted or apply for an insurance program that will cover your services in full. 

Why are you asking for payment at the time of service?

It helps us keep costs down so we can continue to offer you affordable health care. In addition, paying at the time of your visit ensures that you will not receive unwanted mail from us in the form of a bill.

How can Planned Parenthood help me register for Medicaid or the Family Planning Benefit Program?

Planned Parenthood can help you find a Medicaid enrollment office. Please call 1-866-600-6886 for more information.
