Cost of Services

The costs for services at family planning clinics are based on the person's ability to pay and are often less costly than at other health centers. Family planning clinics offer quality, confidential health care. Medical services are provided by a clinical service provider (physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, certified nurse midwives, and registered nurses with an expanded scope of practice who are trained and permitted by state-specific regulations), and trained in family planning health care. Educational programs offered respond to local community needs.
