Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington (PPMW) has supported and protected the right and responsibility of every person to make free, informed reproductive choices, thereby enabling children to be born into families where they are loved and nurtured.
PPMW provides affordable, confidential reproductive health care, family planning, counseling, and testing services at the community clinics, as well teen pregnancy prevention and other community education programs throughout the D.C. metropolitan area.
For the majority of their patients, most of whom are low-income, PPMW fulfills a fundamental need for affordable, accessible reproductive health care and birth control information, particularly among low-income teens, immigrants and other insured and under insured area residents.
PPMW serves more over 40,000 patients at five community clinics, offering a wide range of family planning and reproductive health services to patients of all ages, most of whom are low-income and could not otherwise afford these services.
To encourage and facilitate increased use of the medical and family planning services, PPMW conducts community education and outreach (in both Spanish and English), in order to give high-risk individuals the tools they need to make responsible decisions about sexuality, birth control and pregnancy prevention.
PPMW also provides training programs for parents, school nurses, teachers, clergy, religious lay leaders and other adults working with youth.
These programs are designed to help adults communicate with teens on subjects related to sexuality, sexually transmitted diseases and prevention of unintended pregnancies.
The mission of Planned Parenthood is
* to provide comprehensive reproductive and complementary health care services in settings that preserve and protect the essential privacy and rights of each individual
* to advocate public policies that guarantee these rights and ensure access to such services
* to provide educational programs that enhance understanding of individual and societal implications of human sexuality
* to promote research and the advancement of technology in reproductive health care and encourage understanding of their inherent bioethical, behavioral, and social implications
Since this is a sliding fee scale clinic, we have provided the Federal Poverty Guidelines below. Visit the Planned Parenthood Association website listed above to see what the level is needed for free care.
Federal Poverty Guidelines for 2022
|Persons In Family Household||Poverty Guideline Salary per year|
For Households with more than 8 persons, add $4,480 for each additional person.
*Alaska and Hawaii have different rates for HUD federal poverty guidelines.
These numbers above represent 100% of the Federal Poverty Rate. In order to get reduced or free services from some clinics, they use a sliding fee scale based on your income.When they use a sliding fee scale, the 100% rate can be different than 100%. In those cases, using for example a 200% federal poverty level, you will only need double the 100% number listed above to 200%.
