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.

What to Expect During a Visit

When you arrive at a Sexual Health Clinic, you will:

  1. Take a triage card, time stamp it and sit down in the waiting area.
  2. Fill out the triage card.
    • The triage card includes questions about your sex life and drug use. We ask these questions so we can provide you with appropriate services.
  3. Wait for a triage nurse to call the number on your triage card.

When you visit a clinic, our staff will help determine which of our services are right for you and they will offer referrals if needed.

After the triage nurse calls the number on your triage card, you will speak to them about what services you need.

A clerk will then register you in our electronic medical records. The clerk will ask for identification. If you are 19 or older, the clerk will also ask about your insurance information. Even if you do not have identification or insurance, you will still receive clinic services.

Clinic staff will not ask about your immigration status.

All patients age 12 and older can receive:

Eligible patients can receive:

Depending on what services you need, you may see a:

  • Phlebotomist (someone who draws blood)
  • Nurse practitioner or doctor
  • Public health advisor
  • Patient navigator
  • Social worker
  • Public health assistant

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.
