Payment and Insurance:
Teen Clinic accepts insurance! There are a few different scenarios that may apply to you.
If you are…
17 and under and your parents/guardians know you visit Teen Clinic:
- You can use your insurance for preventative care and services (like birth control) which do not require a co-pay or deductible and receive all other services for free.
- You can use your insurance for all services and your parents/guardians will be responsible for any co-pays or deductibles.
17 and under and you’re parents/guardians do NOT know you visit Teen Clinic:
- Remember that INSURANCE IS NOT MANDATORY. If your parents do not know you go to Teen Clinic or you don’t want to your use your insurance, you do not have to. Your services will still be on a donation basis. There will be no charge for your services and your being here will still be confidential.
All 18 and 19 year olds:
- We encourage all teens in this age bracket to use private insurance, CHP+ or Medicaid. We have an enrollment specialist on site to help in the enrolling process!
- Teens who choose not to enroll in insurance or who choose not to use their insurance will pay out of pocket for services based on the special Teen Clinic pricing scale. Cost for these services will depend on your income.
18 or 19 years old with Medicaid:
- If you have Medicaid, you can use it for any services at Teen Clinic. If the services are related to prevention or birth control, there will be no co-pay. If the services are not, there may be a $1 or $2 co-pay
18 or 19 years old with Private Insurance:
- You can use your insurance for preventative care and services(like birth control) which do not require a co-pay or deductible and use the special Teen Clinic pricing scale for all other services. Cost for additional services will depend on your income.
- You can use your insurance for all services and you will be responsible for any co-pays or deductibles.
Confidentiality Notice for 18 and 19 year olds using a parent or guardian’s insurance:
Effective January 1st, the Colorado Division of Insurance provided some confidentiality protection for young adults (ages 18-25) covered under their parent/guardian’s insurance. Insurance companies will send the Explanation of Benefits (which summarizes services received) to the patient directly, rather than to the parents or guardians. If you are insured under someone else’s policy and are concerned about confidentiality, you can contact your insurance company and have them send the Explanation of Benefits to another address.
