Many of Planned Parenthood's services, like birth control and annual exams, are available without copay or deductible. With or without insurance, we're here to provide expert sexual and reproductive health care, no matter what.
Planned Parenthood leads the country with the most up-to-date medical standards and guidelines in sexual and reproductive health care. Our providers have the same training as primary care providers, plus specialized education in women's bodies and health.
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.
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.
Open enrollment for private insurance ended January 14, 2018. However, eligible people can sign up for Medical Assistance or MinnesotaCare (MNCare) at any time. People with a qualifying life event can also sign up.
Our certified Navigators can help you find out if you qualify for a Special Enrollment Period. You can read more about qualifying life events on the official HealthCare.gov website.
In addition to insurance, Planned Parenthood accepts:
Credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express)
Flex Spending Account (FSA) cards
In some cases we may be able to work with you to arrange a payment plan for certain services.

Copay: A set amount of money agreed upon by a patient and an insurnace company that the patient must pay out of pocket for medical services and prescriptions.
Deductible: A set amount of money that a person with insurance is required to pay for health care before their health insurance will start covering any costs.
