Our goal is to empower patients to take control of their health by removing barriers to quality contraceptive services.

The health centers in green are participating in a statewide initiative called The Right Time. We believe birth control gives people the power to make their own plans, on their own schedule, and on their own terms. Our goal is to empower patients to take control of their health by removing barriers to quality contraceptive services.
Here are some things to know about The Right Time health centers:
- At your nearest The Right Time health center, all methods of contraception are free or available at a low-cost, no matter what kind of insurance you have (or don’t have).
- Any method that you decide is right for you, you can get that same day. You do not have to schedule a follow-up appointment for one week or two weeks later to come back and get the new method.
- All The Right Time health centers put the patient first by offering inclusive, non-biased, and scientifically accurate care. Any method you decide to use is your choice, and providers will not try to influence your health care decisions in any way.
