Thank you for scheduling your video visit with Planned Parenthood.

Your visit will be provided using secure video with the same clinicians you would normally see at one of our health centers. Video visits are as easy as 1-2-3. Just follow the steps below! Call us at 1-800-230-PLAN (7526) with questions or if you need to change your appointment.

Making an appointment

You can access a telehealth appointment with us by calling 1-800-230-PLAN or online

Telehealth appointments are available at this time for visits to get birth control, emergency contraception, pre-exposure prophylactic medication for HIV prevention (PrEP), hormone therapy, and routine STD screening for people who are symptom-free. If you're not sure if you're having symptoms, we recommend asking the call center if an in-clinic appointment is right for you.

Tips for a successful appointment

Before your appointment begins, there are a few steps you can do to make sure it goes smoothly.

  • Close any unnecessary background apps and processes on your phone, tablet, or computer.
  • Make sure all devices (such as headphones, webcams, or speakers) that you plan to use are plugged in and working.
  • Ensure your internet or data connection is stable and that you are close by any wireless access points.
  • Be in a private place, as your provider may ask personal questions during your visit. Consider using a headset or headphones if you have them.
  • Try to minimize distractions in your space. 
  • Have everything you need close at hand, such as your insurance card or credit card, so that you don't need to move around during the call. 
  • If you have a computer, we advise using your computer to access your appointment in case you need access to the other apps on your phone.
  • Review the Devices and Connection Guide  
  • Don’t forget to run a quick test on your device prior to your visit.
