Chelsea Sexual Health Clinic

Sexual Health Clinics

You can get low- to no-cost services for sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including HIV, at the NYC Department of Health's eight Sexual Health Clinics. Our clinics see patients on a first come, first served basis. No appointment is necessary. Anyone who is 12 or older can visit a clinic, regardless of immigration status. No parental consent is necessary.

If you do not have health insurance or cannot pay the sliding scale fee, you can still get services.

The New York City Health Department asks for a fee for Sexual Health Clinic services given to adults (age 19 and over). The Health Department must ask for insurance or payment for services to meet Medicaid standards and other legal requirements. If you want to use your health insurance to pay for the visit, your insurance plan will be billed. A copayment may be required. If you do not have health insurance or do not want your insurance billed for the visit, you will be asked to pay a sliding scale fee based on your family size and yearly income. You will not be asked for proof of family size or yearly income. No payments will be collected at the clinic. See links below for more details.

If you do not have insurance or cannot pay the fee, you can still get services.

You can request a copy of your medical record from the NYS Department of Health.
