Family Planning Service (FPS) has special clinic sessions dedicated to teens and provides service to males during specific hours. Clinics are open during the daytime, evenings and two Saturdays a month. FPS accepts all private insurance, as well as all NYS Fee for Service Medicaid and Medicaid Managed Care Programs. Fees are not a barrier to service and inability to pay is not a barrier to care. A sliding fee scale is available and there are a number of programs that help pay for care.
Women who had Medicaid for their last pregnancy may be able to receive family planning services for two years after the end of the pregnancy at no cost to them even if they are no longer on Medicaid through the Family Planning Benefit Program and the Family Planning Extension Program.
FPS offers facilitated enrollment for both the Presumptive Eligibility for Pregnancy (Medicaid) and the Family Planning Benefit Program (FPBP), which is a New York State program that will pay for medical care related to family planning needs. Both women and men are eligible for FPBP. Teenagers can apply confidentially. The program pays for exams, birth control methods, emergency contraception, pap smears, lab tests related to family planning, STD testing and treatment, HIV testing and sterilization. Individuals who are not eligible for full Medicaid and who do not have insurance may qualify for this program.
FPS staff will help you apply when you come in for an appointment. When you call to make the appointment, you will be told what documents you need to bring in with you. In order to qualify, you must:
• Live in New York State
• Be a citizen or have satisfactory immigration status
• Be able to have children
• Meet income guidelines, and not be on Medicaid or Family Health Plus.
