Comprehensive Medical Visit
A Step Ahead Foundation believes in best medical practices and provides a bundle of services with your appointment for long-term reversible birth control. These may include; pregnancy test, STI/STD testing, PAP smear, cost of the birth control and the cost for the medical providers time.
Free Means Free
If you don’t have insurance we will cover the full cost. Our goal is to ensure that all Shelby County women can access low maintenance, highly effective, reversible birth control with no out of pocket cost. A Step Ahead Foundation is here to make sure that you never get a bill for your birth control appointment through us. We do this by serving as the payer of last resort. That means the clinic will charge TennCare, Title X or your private insurance but if there are any left over costs A Step Ahead Foundation WILL PAY THEM.
Our Birth Control
A Step Ahead Foundation only provides the most effective methods of birth control. All of our birth control is reversible, so it can be removed by a health care provider at any time.
