Frequently Asked Questions

How do I qualify?

Our birth control is available to any woman living in Middle Tennessee (Bedford, Cannon, Cheatham, Davidson, DeKalb, Dickson, Hickman, Macon, Marshall, Maury, Montgomery, Robertson, Rutherford, Smith, Sumner, Trousdale, Williamson, and Wilson Counties). Girls under the age of 13 must receive parental consent.

What if I don't have insurance?

We pay the full cost for any of our clients who want to receive a free IUD or implant.

What if I have insurance?

Our partner health clinics will bill your private insurance first, and we will pay any co-pay and/or deductibles for Middle Tennessee residents. There will be no out of pocket costs to our patients.

What does the appointment include?

An appointment includes a well-woman's health screening, pregnancy test, STI test, and free birth control. If you are over 21, you will also receive a free Pap test.

How do I get to my appointment?

No worries! We provide free transportation to and from appointments. We will set this up through our call center when you make an appointment.

Will you pay for my pill/patch/ring prescription?

Sorry, we only pay for IUDs and implants. These methods are more effective and hassle-free. We recommend talking to your doctor or nurse about whether an implant or IUD could be right for you!
