Upper Hudson

Preparing for your Visit

Thank you for choosing Upper Hudson Planned Parenthood as your health care provider.

To ensure the best experience possible we have provided a list of instructions to help you prepare for your visit.

If you have any questions regarding these instructions or your appointment please feel free to contact us at 800.230.PLAN (7526). 

We ask that you do not bring children with you to your appointment - for their safety, children cannot go into the back office. Thank you. 

For Your Visit: 

  • Please bring valid photo identification and, if you have insurance, a hard copy of your insurance card, to present when you check in for your appointment. 
  • If you are running late, call us, so that we can provide you with your options for the day. If you are late, we do reserve the right to reschedule. 


Payment Options:

Self-Pay/Fee Assessment
Payment is expected at the time of service (cash, credit card [Visa, Mastercard and Discover], no personal checks, please). If you are using a credit card you will need to provide photo ID. If someone will be making a payment on your behalf they should be there with you and also prepared to present photo ID.
