How Do I Pay For Services?
Most teens are eligible for coverage under the Family Planning Benefit Program, free insurance that covers all birth control methods, annual exams and pap smears, and even testing and treatment services as part of a birth control visit. If eligible, you can sign up and start using your coverage on the same day. 

Upper Hudson Planned Parenthood (UHPP) accepts a wide range of health insurances. For those who don't have health insurance or can't enroll (with our help), we offer family planning services on a sliding scale, based on income. In these cases, UHPP accepts cash, or credit card for payment of services. Most young patients qualify for financial assistance. Our staff is ready to provide you with information about these programs and to help you with the enrollment process. Click here to visit our Teen Patient Frequently Asked Questions for more information on insurance, enrollment, privacy and payment.
