Confidentiality is very important. The Kay County Health Department will not release health information without our client's knowledge unless we are required by law.
If a minor (a client under 18 years of age) is involved in a Family Planning or a Sexually Transmitted Disease clinic we will not contact the parent regarding the clinic involvement, but we do strongly encourage the client to do so.
No one is refused services based on inability to pay.
For those without insurance, a sliding scale, based on number in household and income, is used to determine fees.
For those with insurance, we provide third party billing. Based on your insurance plan, you may be responsible for deductibles, co-pays, and co-insurances for fees not covered by your insurance company.
Pregnancy tests, STD screenings, birth control refills, and emergency contraception services are provided by walk-in. View each clinic's walk-in hours on the home page, by clicking here.
All other family planning services are provided by appointment. Please call your area clinic to schedule an appointment.
