What’s it going to cost me?
All of the services offered at Hope are completely free of charge. That includes pregnancy testing, ultrasounds, limited STD testing & treatment, options education, and support services.
Are your appointments and services confidential?
All of our appointments are private and confidential. We know it’s hard to take the first step and we want you to know that we respect and support you for taking it. That said, our practice is to maintain the confidentiality of your medical information, except in very limited circumstances, such as when we are required by law to report evidence of abuse.
Can I bring someone with me?
We understand needing a friend, partner, spouse, or family member during times like this. Feel free to bring someone along. We will meet with you personally at first to give you the privacy you need for the intake process. Then, your friend, partner, spouse, or family member will be able to join you later in the appointment. Of course, you can always choose not to allow anyone to join you later in the appointment, too.
What can I expect when I come in for an appointment?
You can expect to receive free medical and support services without the fear of being judged by our caring and compassionate staff, in a warm, relaxing setting.
Does Hope Pregnancy Center comply with HIPAA?
HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, primarily deals with the relationship between your clinic and your health insurer. Since Hope offers all services free of charge, we have no need to communicate with any insurers, and HIPAA is inapplicable. That said, our practice is to maintain the confidentiality of your medical information, except in very limited circumstances, such as when we are required by law to report evidence of abuse. We understand that unexpected pregnancies and STDs are sensitive subjects and that your privacy is important to you. When you visit Hope, we will provide you with a written explanation of our privacy practices for you to sign.
What do I need to bring with me?
When you come in for an appointment, please be prepared to provide a valid form of photo identification. Acceptable forms of identification include:
- A State Issued Driver’s License
- A US Military ID
- A Government Issued ID
- A Student ID
Can I just come in whenever, or do I need an appointment?
We want to make sure we have the appropriate staff available to serve you so it’s usually best to have an appointment.
How long does an appointment last?
We try to schedule anywhere from 45 to 60 minutes for each appointment.
Can I get the morning-after pill at Hope?
Hope doesn’t offer the morning-after pill, or Plan B. However, it’s important for you to rule out pregnancy from any previous sexual activity, so if that’s a possibility for you, feel free to schedule an appointment.
Can I get birth control at Hope?
We don’t provide contraceptives, but encourage you to discuss that with your personal doctor.
As a Christian organization, are you going to push religion on me?
Not at all. We would never continue a conversation about spiritual issues without your permission. Most people feel there is a spiritual component to consider in their decision, so we would be remiss if we ignored it. However, we are not interested in pushing our Christian beliefs down your throat.
