Family Planning

Women of childbearing age, and men, too, are eligible to receive Family Planning Services. Clients who desire services are charged according to a sliding scale fee based on their income and family size. Medicaid is billed for eligible recipients, including patients who qualify for the Medicaid-supported State Plan Amendment (SPA). Women and men of any age who are below 100% of the Federal poverty guidelines but who are not eligible for Medicaid are not charged for family planning services.

Services are provided solely on a voluntary basis, without regard to religion, race, color, national origin, creed, handicap, sex, number of pregnancies, national status, age or contraceptive preference. Clinics are conducted on an appointment basis in order to decrease client waiting time.
