Other Services

In addition to covering the cost of your birth control, the Access Fund can cover other services you receive during your appointment: 

  • Annual exam – includes pelvic exam, Pap smear, and breast exam 

  • STD testing 

  • Infection treatment 

  • PrEP counseling 

  • HPV vaccine 


How do I know if I qualify? 
  • You must be a resident of Sarasota, DeSoto, or Manatee county or make the appointment at our Sarasota health center.
  • If you do not have insurance, or your insurance does not cover the total cost of your birth control, you qualify.
How do I get the funding? 
  • If you make your appointment online, make sure you mention that you’re interested in the Access Fund covering the cost of your appointment when you are taken to the exam room. 
  • If you call to make your appointment, you can ask the representative scheduling you about the Access Fund.  

  • If you have a Telehealth appointment (a virtual visit online), be sure you mention the Access Fund to cover the cost of your services.​

If I don’t like the new birth control method I chose, what do I do? 

Don’t worry, just make a follow-up appointment to discuss your concerns with one of our providers. Please inform our staff during scheduling or at the time of appointment that you will be utilizing the Access Fund to cover the cost again.  

When will funding be available in other areas?

Currently, we do not have funding available in other areas. If funding does become available, we will update this webpage to reflect the most up to date information.
