Sexual Health Clinics

Reduced Capacity During the COVID-19 Outbreak

Due to the outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), 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.


The NYC Sexual Health Clinics continue to provide low- to no-cost services for sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including HIV. Anyone who is 12 or older can receive walk-in services, 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.

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.
