Family Planning Eligibility and Fee Scale

Services are provided to anyone capable of reproduction, regardless of age, sex, religion, race, color, national origin, creed, handicap, number of pregnancies, marital status, or income.

A sliding fee scale is used. Fees are based on family size and income.

At your first appointment, you will be asked to provide proof of your current income. Your most recent 1040 tax form or paycheck stub can serve as proof of income.

No one is denied services based on inability to pay.
