Make the most of your health insurance.

Insurance is confusing. Understanding how your policy works can help you get the most out of your coverage. If you have insurance, many of Planned Parenthood's services may be available with no out-of-pocket cost. With or without insurance, we're here to provide care, no matter what. Find a clinic to book online.

What can insurance cover?

Plans vary, but most cover a wide range of preventive care, like birth control and annual exams, without copay or deductible. You can read more about the types of services that are usually covered on the official HealthCare.gov website.

It's a good idea to contact your health insurance company directly to make sure the services you're interested in are covered. They can tell you if you'll need to pay for anything out-of-pocket.

Can I come to Planned Parenthood if I don't have insurance?

Planned Parenthood is here to provide care, no matter what. If you don't have insurance or are concerned about cost, you may qualify for low- to no-cost services.

Eligibility is based on factors like income, insurance status, and programs available at your local Planned Parenthood clinic. Our highly trained staff can help you determine if you qualify for no-cost birth control, or low-to no-cost STD testing and other services.
