Payment Policy & Pricing

WomanSafeHealth is a fee-for-service medical practice. Payment is due in full at the time of service, except for your initial visit. A non-refundable deposit is required to make your initial appointment. We accept credit cards, debit cards, PayPal, cash, checks and money orders. We welcome clients without and with insurance. We provide a coded medical receipt at the time of your visit, which can be submitted to an insurance company, health savings account or used for tax purposes.

Although we do not accept any health insurance for payment of office visits, we ask that you bring health insurance information with you for ordering tests so that hospitals and laboratories can bill your insurance directly.

Gift certificates are available for all services and products.

The New Client Missed Appointment Fee will apply if you cancel your appointment with less than one week's notice. If you cancel your new client appointment with more than one week's notice, your deposit will remain on your account at WomanSafeHealth as a credit, which can be applied to another new client appointment, gift certificates, classes, groups, services or products. For example, a Monday new client appointment scheduled for 10 a.m. must be cancelled no later than 10 a.m. of the preceding Monday. Cancellations made with less than one week's notice will forfeit the deposit without exception. The deposit will be applied to the new client missed appointment fee. If you have previously used your deposit to cover a new client missed appointment fee, another deposit will be required prior to scheduling another new client appointment.
