Sexual Health Clinics

Due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, we have reshaped our clinic experience to protect patients and staff. Select Sexual Health Clinic services are available on a walk-in basis to a limited number of patients each day. Patients can also call the NYC Sexual Health Clinic Hotline to speak with a Sexual Health Clinic health care provider

Patient Safety

COVID-19 Symptoms

Do not visit a Sexual Health Clinic if you have COVID-19 symptoms. If you need sexual health services, call the NYC Sexual Health Clinic Hotline.

Reduced Capacity

To assure patient and staff safety, we will limit the waiting area to eight visitors at a time. Patients may experience longer than usual wait times. If the waiting area if full, you may be asked to return at a later time.

When the clinic is busy, priority will be given to patients coming to the Sexual Health Clinics for emergency services: HIV PEP, emergency contraception, HIV treatment initiation, or urgent follow-up for patients contacted by clinic staff.

Guest Policy

Patients should only bring guests (family, friends, guardians or other caregivers) to their visit if they are essential. Upon arrival, patients will be informed that friends or family members who are not essential to the visit will be asked to wait outside of the building. Exceptions can be made for minors who visit with a parent or guardian.

All patients and essential guests over 2 years old who enter the building will be required to wear a mask, according to New York State law. Patients and essential guests who are unable to wear a mask for medical reasons will be provided a face shield. Masks for children will be available upon request.

Social distancing will be strictly enforced. If a patient or their essential guest is not following social distancing protocol, they will be asked to come back at another time.

Health Insurance and Billing

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.
