Family Planning

Service


This program provides services to help you prevent unintended pregnancy and maintain your reproductive health. The Family Planning program plays a critical role in ensuring access to a broad range of family planning and related sexual health services for low-income or uninsured males and females. 

Our clinicians provide a confidential healthcare experience that is sensitive to your needs. Family Planning provides affordable exams, methods of birth control, education and counseling to assist with health and wellness. We encourage you to take charge of your health and learn more about Family Planning.

Regional Vasectomy Program


This program is sponsored by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services; supported by the Title X grant. The cost of the surgery is determined using a sliding fee scale based on family size and income. Many men can receive the vasectomy at no cost. The service is available each year until the funds are depleted. To qualify for the vasectomy program you must be a North Carolina resident at least 21 years of age. If you are interested, contact the health department for more information about the program. 


Fees and Eligibility



Payment is expected at time of service. We accept cash, check, credit/debit card with valid ID. Fees are based on your family size and income, and vary depending on services.  Medicaid and private insurance are billed when applicable. Services will not be denied due to inability to pay. 

Services are available regardless of county of residence.
 

If you are a female between the ages of 19- 55 or a male between ages 19-60, you may qualify for birth control through the NC Family Planning Waiver/Be Smart Program with no out of pocket costs.  For more information http://www.ncdhhs.gov/dma/medicaid/familyplanning.htm
