Frequently Asked Questions

Does The Hope 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.

Can I get the morning-after pill at Hope?

Hope does not offer the morning after pill, known as Plan B. However, it is important to rule out pregnancy from any previous sexual activity. If this is a possibility for you, feel free to schedule an appointment.

Can I get birth control at Hope?

Hope does not provide contraceptives, but can provide comprehensive information on contraceptive methods and their effectiveness.

What kind of STI testing does Hope offer?
