Where can young people get a LARC?
LARC may be available where teens already go for medical care, and may be covered by their insurance.
There’s also another option for obtaining LARC. Thanks to New York State’s Family Planning Benefits Program (FPBP), most teens can get LARC confidentially and for free. There are several clinics in the Rochester area that can enroll patients in this benefits program.
To find a family planning site near you offering free and confidential LARC, visit the New York State Department of Health Family Planning Program Sites website.
For more information about FPBP and eligibility requirements for this program, read about it on the New York State Department of Health website page about the Family Planning Benefit Program.
