"Everyone I met here on staff was truly kind, friendly and helpful. My experience here was actually positive. I am leaving here with a sense of healing that I wouldn't have imagined."
—Aradia Client

Aradia Women's Health Center accepts medical coupons, cash/MasterCard/Visa or private medical insurance for payment of services. Unfortunately, we do not accept personal checks or Medicare. All payment is due in full at the time of your appointment. If you have any questions about these payment options, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Medical Coupons/ Medicaid

There are several different types of medical coupons, and different coupons cover different services. Coupons are green and white, and the type of coupon is printed in the bottom right-hand corner. The dates for which the coupon is valid are in the upper right-hand corner.

CNP (Categorically Needy Program) Coupons
CNP (also known as Emergency or Pregnancy Medical Coupons) is a type of coupon that will pay for abortion services or for any kind of pregnancy-related health care, such as an ultrasound. A CNP coupon will also cover gynecological services, Pap smears and sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing. If you currently have a different type of coupon and are pregnant, you will need to have your coupon changed over to CNP. Eligibility for CNP coupons is based on family size and income. 

If you are a U.S. citizen, you will need to provide a copy of your birth certificate or passport, or complete a citizenship declaration form along with your application.

If you are not a U.S. citizen, you will need to provide a copy of your green card or fill out the non-citizen declaration form with your application. You are eligible for CNP coupons if you are not a U.S. citizen.

To apply for CNP coupons or have your coupon changed to CNP, contact Community Health Access Program (CHAP) or your local DSHS office. CHAP can usually process applications within seven to 10 days and can be reached at 1-800-756-5437. 

To receive a CNP coupon you need:
  • Proof of pregnancy from a doctor's office or clinic (Aradia provides free pregnancy testing)
  • Photo ID
  • Proof of income (a pay stub) if you are currently working

When you get the CNP coupon, please bring it with you to your appointment at Aradia or fax it to us beforehand at (206) 323-0120. If we do not have a copy of your coupon at the time of your appointment, we will ask you to pay the cash fee or reschedule your appointment.

Take Charge Medical Coupons
Take Charge is a Washington state-funded program that covers birth control and related gynecological care, such as Pap smears and some STI testing. Below is a list of the requirements for the Take Charge program:

  1. Your income must be under $1,634/month (if you have a household size of one) or not exceed 200 percent of the poverty level for your household size.
  2. You must be interested in birth control, and you cannot be pregnant.
  3. You cannot have other health insurance that covers birth control. If you are under 18 years old and covered under your parents’ insurance, you can still qualify for Take Charge if you need to keep your appointment confidential.
  4. You must be a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident (LPR) of Washington state.

If you think you qualify for Take Charge, please bring the following with you to your appointment:

  • A photo ID, such as a driver’s license, passport or other official photo identification.
  • The amount of your gross monthly income – this is the dollar amount your employer pays before taking out taxes. You do not have to bring a pay stub with you, but the income you report will be checked by the state and should be accurate. You do not need to include parents’ income, but you do need to include a spouse’s income. If you are unsure what your gross income is, please bring your recent pay stubs with you to your appointment and we can assist you.
  • If you are a citizen, you must bring proof of citizenship with you. This can be a passport or a birth certificate. If you do not have either of these, you can sign a form declaring that you are a citizen. The state will check this information in their database to confirm your citizenship. You also need to know your 9-digit social security number, but you do not need to bring your social security card with you.
  • If you are a legal resident, please bring a copy of your green card with you. If you do not have your green card but are a legal resident, then you can sign a form that declares you are a legal resident. The state will check this information in their database to confirm your legal residency.
Unfortunately, we cannot enroll non-legal residents into the Take Charge program. If you are not a legal resident or citizen but are interested in birth control, please call us to talk about your payment options.

If you qualify for Take Charge, we can sign you up at your Aradia appointment, which will cover the costs of that appointment. You will then receive your coupon in the mail three to four weeks later.* Your Take Charge coupon will pay for all birth control-related services for the next year at any doctor’s office, clinic or pharmacy that accepts Medicaid. When you use Take Charge coupons for STI testing, please be aware that the coupon has only limited coverage and you will have to pay for all non-covered tests.

*If you do not receive the coupon or never heard from us that you were ineligible, please call the Take Charge program at 1-800-770-4334. Please contact us if you have any questions. 

Family Planning Only Coupons
Family Planning Only coupons are very limited in the services they cover. You can use them to pay for birth control and Pap smears, but the coupon does not cover abortion services and most STI testing. The only way to get a Family Planning Only coupon is if you had a CNP coupon during a recent pregnancy.

Alaska Medicaid
Aradia accepts Alaska Medicaid for Alaskan residents. Alaska Medicaid covers a variety of services including family planning and birth control. Please visit Alaska’s Department of Health and Social Services Web site for more information on Medicaid eligibility and how to apply for coverage.

If you have a coupon that is not listed here, please talk to one of our phone counselors about what services your coupon will cover.

Cash/MC/Visa

For clients who pay with cash or credit card, we offer a discounted fee schedule based on your income. The lower your income, the less you pay. For more information, please speak with one of our phone counselors.

Private Insurance

When you make your appointment at Aradia, we will ask for your insurance company's phone number, and your subscriber and group numbers to verify your eligibility and obtain a quote of benefit coverage. We will then contact you about any co-payments or additional costs you may be charged.

Please note that insurance benefits quoted to you are never a guarantee of coverage, and your insurance company makes their final determination only when they receive the claim. If your insurance fails to pay for the services you received, you are responsible for that amount.

Many insurance companies cover abortion services, so please let our phone counselors know if you have insurance coverage. We are contracted providers with a number of major insurance companies, including Regence, Aetna, Premera, Cigna, First Choice, Molina and CHPW.
