Telehealth through Planned Parenthood

Visit our new Virtual Health Center to get the same, high-quality care via video chat in the comfort of your home! It’s fast, easy, and completely private. We're now offering telehealth for a variety of services, including birth control, STI/UTI screening and treatment, transgender care, and more.

Give us a call to make an appointment or learn more about which services are available in your area.

Telehealth is a virtual visit between you and one of our providers.

You will need access to an internet connection through a device with video capability (computer, smart phone, or tablet with Firefox, Safari, or Chrome), and a private space for your virtual visit. 

The current crisis makes virtual care solutions like telehealth an indispensable tool as COVID-19 spreads across US communities. During the state of emergency, Insurance carriers such as Aetna, Avmed, BCBS, United Healthcare,  and Medicaid, will continue to cover telehealth services provided through live, two-way communication, as medically necessary. These services are covered with little to no copayment depending on your insurance plan.

For your privacy, we will not video record or screen capture during your virtual visit. 

Frequently Asked Questions

How much will telehealth cost?

It varies. Your telehealth visit may be free or low cost with health insurance. But some insurance plans don’t cover all sexual and reproductive health services. The staff at Planned Parenthood health centers work hard to give you the services you need, whether or not you have insurance. Many charge less for services, depending on your income. When you contact your local health center and make your telehealth appointment, you’ll learn more about specific costs. The staff may be able to help you get care you can afford.  

What services can I get through telehealth?

We offer telehealth for the following services so we can continue to provide care — no matter what:

Can I get an abortion with telehealth?

We are not providing abortion care services through telehealth. Please call or make an online appointment at a health center near you.

Will my telehealth visit be private?

Yes. Just like when you visit a Planned Parenthood for a health care appointment in person, your telehealth appointment will be private. And make sure to find a quiet, well lit, private space on your end for your telehealth visit.
