Q: I have insurance, but it is through my parent or partner. Will they find out about my visit?
A: Many insurance companies send an explanation of benefits (EOB) that list visit details. If you don't want anyone to know about your visit, you do not have to use your insurance. We will not bill your insurance, so nothing will go to the person who pays for the insurance plan.
Q: I'm under 18 and I don't have insurance. Will I have to pay for my visit?
A: Many patients qualify for the Family Planning Benefit Program. Through this free program you can get birth control, yearly exams, STI testing/treatment, and other services - at no cost to you.
We may be able to help you sign up for free, confidential coverage to pay for your services.
Family Planning Benefit Program
Many patients qualify for the Family Planning Benefit Program (FPBP). It is free insurance through New York State that covers the cost of birth control, office visits, cancer screenings, STI testing/treatment, and other services – at no cost. Ask about free transportation.
High Co-Pay or Deductible?
You can use the Family Planning Benefit program with your insurance, like a second insurance. It will cover your co-pay and deductible – so your visit would be free.
Here's how you can enroll:
You can sign up for Medicaid, Child Health Plus, and private insurance plans through the Marketplace. It's easy to compare health plans and apply for financial assistance that lowers the cost of your health insurance. (You can apply for Medicaid or CHIP, at any time of the year.)
You can also sign up by phone through NYS: 1.855.355.5777.
Need assistance? You can sign up in person at Planned Parenthood health centers.
