Costs

The Health Department provides quality family planning services at an affordable price. Services are charged on a sliding-fee scale based on your income. That means that the amount you pay is based on your income and family size. If you have private health insurance, you are charged on a sliding fee scale based on your income. Kentucky Medicaid plans are accepted. No one will be denied service because of inability to pay.
