Q: If a patient does not have any insurance coverage, will Equality Health Group Foundation charge anything?
A: No. We have a program for individuals who are uninsured.
Q: Does Equality Health Group Foundation only provide services for sexual health?
A: Yes. At this time, Equality Health Group Foundation focuses on sexual health. That includes prevention, testing, or treatment. Our goal is to get our hands around the current uptick in sexually transmitted diseases and to provide treatment.
Q: How long will it take to get an appointment?
A: There is not a month long wait to get into our clinic. Patients will be able to set an appointment online through our portal or call our office to set up your appointment. We also keep several “New Patient” appointments on our schedule throughout the week so we can treat as many patients as possible.
Q: If I do have insurance, how does this work?
A: Just like any other clinic, we have partnered with insurance companies to provide sexual healthcare for our insured patients. We know that copays, deductibles, and prior authorizations can be hurdles. That being said, we will look at each scenario on a case by case basis to see what you can afford. At the end of the day, you as the patient are taken care of.
Q: I see a different doctor for my sexual health needs. What if I want to switch to Equality Health Group Foundation?
A: We have a form that you can fill out to switch your sexual healthcare provider. All healthcare is based on patient choice, and we want to make it a collaborative effort.
Q: My prescriptions for sexual health cost quite a bit per month. Does Equality Health Group Foundation help with that?
A: Yes. We are contracted with over 30 pharmacies and look at the overall picture of the patients healthcare to not only provide the most effective medications possible, but to also make sure that you aren’t left with massive out of pocket expenses at the end of the day.
Q: Does Equality Health Group Foundation accept patients who speak Spanish?
A: Yes. We are very excited and proud to be able to provide sexual health services to the Latino Community.
