To ensure continued access to birth control and other essential sexual and reproductive health services during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond, Maine Family Planning uses telehealth technology to connect with patients from a distance.
A Virtual Visit lets you see an expert Maine Family Planning provider without having to travel or leave home. A telehealth appointment is a lot like your regular in-person visit, just over video. All you need is Internet access and a smartphone, tablet, or computer with a camera. You’ll log in and see your provider on the screen. Your medical provider can discuss medical concerns, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment options (including prescription medicine), and more. It’s all secure and confidential – and the technology is easy to use!
The services we provide virtually include:
- Birth control: extending prescriptions, prescribing a new method, counseling on methods
- Emergency contraception
- Urinary tract infection (UTI) diagnosis and treatment
- Pregnancy options counseling
- Open Door gender-affirming health care
- STI testing and treatment
- Some forms of gynecologic care, testing, and treatment
Like most medical appointments, cost varies based on insurance coverage and type of visit. A sliding fee scale is available.
Most insurers are now covering telehealth care. If you have specific questions, please contact your insurance company.
If a Virtual Visit will not meet your needs, we will work to get you into a nearby Maine Family Planning clinic while using all CDC recommended procedures to keep you and our staff safe. As a reminder, if you have symptoms of COVID-19 (cough, fever, shortness of breath) or have recently been exposed to someone who has tested positive or has symptoms and is awaiting a test result, we ask that you defer an in-person visit. Thanks for working with us to keep everyone healthy.
