Planned Parenthood offers affordable healthcare.
Payment of fees or your co-pay is expected at the time of service. We accept cash, checks, debit cards, and Visa or MasterCard. We can bill most insurance plans for your medical services including: Premera, Regence, Aetna, CIGNA, First Choice, Community Health Plan, and Uniform Medical Plan.
Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and the Hawaiian Islands announces acceptance of insurance coverage of prescription medication. We can already bill most insurance plans for your medical services, now we can also bill many prescription plans for your birth control and other medicines.
All you'll need is a current insurance card with prescription drug coverage and your co-pay. Then you can complete your visit to Planned Parenthood in just one stop, there's no need to stop at a pharmacy after your exam to fill your prescription or when you need to pick up a refill.
Some prescription medication insurance plans limit providers, ask us if your plan pays for prescriptions from Planned Parenthood.
Please Note: Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and the Hawaiian Islands is not a general pharmacy and can only fill prescriptions written by our medical professionals related to your PPGNHI visit.
We make every effort to accommodate everyone who seeks our services. Proof of income is required for those seeking discounted services. Verify your income and ask if you qualify for any programs that could help pay for part or all of your services. Programs vary by state. Check below to learn more about programs available to patients in some of our four states.
Payment Plans in Alaska, Idaho, and Washington
Patients may visit us for an appointment and walk out the door with a years supply of birth control and a convenient low monthly payment plan.
Now you can include any outstanding balances and other Planned Parenthood health care services and set up automatic deductions to your credit or debit card, or you can use your banking information such as a checking or savings account.
Get a year's worth of Birth Control in just one visit.
We encourage payment in full at the time of your visit, but we recognize that it's often helpful to be able to pay off your balance over several months. You can get all the birth control you need in a year at one visit and set up a payment plan. All you need is an open balance of at least $40 with Planned Parenthood and an active debit card, MasterCard, VISA, Discover, American Express or a checking or savings account.
New patients must be evaluated by a clinician.
Established patients may now transfer prior balances of $40 or more to a payment plan.
Our monthly payment plans cover all family planning exams, lab tests, birth control methods, and STI testing and treatment services. (Full payment is required for vasectomies, and aspiration or medical abortions.)
It's like a non-interest loan
All transactions are safe and secure. Our monthly payment plans use the same automatic billing services as banks and other financial institutions with the highest level of online security available. All of your data will be encrypted and protected. Partial payment is required at your initial visit when signing up for a payment plan. Monthly installments are automatically paid from an active checking or savings account, or debit or credit card of your choice.
You then have up to 10 months to pay off your balance. No interest is charged on the balance of your account. Interest charges only apply if you have other charges on your credit or debit card from other sources than Planned Parenthood.
Your minimum payment must be at least $20 per month.
Your minimum payment account balance must be at least $40.

What are "breast and cervical health screenings?"
"Screening" refers to tests and exams used to find a disease, such as cancer, in people who may not have symptoms. The earlier any cancer is found, including breast or cervical cancer, the better chances are that treatment will work.
Breast cancer screenings include breast exam by a clinician, and depending on your age, a mammogram.
Cervical Cancer screening includes a pelvic exam and a Pap test by a clinician.
What does BCHC pay for?
BCHC pays for clinical breast exams, pelvic exams, Pap test and screening and diagnostic mammograms appropriate to your age and medical history.
BCHC can pay for approved screening exams. If any exam results are abnormal, BCHC can also pay for approved diagnostic tests to rule out problems, including cancer.
BCHC can't pay everything. For example, we can't pay for birth control, general bloodwork, or diagnosis and treatment of sexually transmitted infections.
