WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING TO MY APPOINTMENT?
We can help patients with no insurance or low income apply for programs to help cover the cost of an exam and birth control. To apply for help, bring with you the following information:
- Photo ID
- Birth certificate
- Social Security number
- Verification of all income received for the past 30 days, including any wages,
- child support, unemployment, disability, etc.
- If you have insurance, bring your card along. You may still qualify for financial help.
WHAT IF I DON'T HAVE ALL OF THIS INFORMATION WITH ME ON THE DAY OF MY APPOINTMENT?
Keep your appointment. Don't cancel just because you can't find a piece of paper. You will have time after your appointment to send in any information you don't have with you the day of your appointment.
CAN I HAVE A FEMALE HEALTHCARE PROVIDER FOR MY EXAM?
Yes. In fact, all our staff are women.
IF I AM UNDER 18 YEARS OLD, WILL YOU TELL MY PARENTS?
No. In Iowa, minors (teens) are not required to have parental permission for family planning services, including pregnancy testing and testing for sexually transmitted diseases.
Can I get emergency contraception ("morning after pill") at Allen Women's Health?
Yes. You can also get emergency contraception, without a prescription, from a local pharmacy. You have up to five days after having sex to start taking emergency contraception.
