What to bring: Proof of Maryland residency, income, and/or insurance should be brought to your visit.
What to expect:
- Take a number located on the center beam by the chairs in the waiting room (please ask if you are unsure)
- Registration staff will call your number and guide you through the process and where to put your paperwork.
- A nurse will take you to a private room and review your medical history. During this time, you may discuss any concerns. The nurse will also answer any questions you may have and discuss testing options.
- You will then see the clinician who will discuss your care and offer an examination. During the examination, the clinician will explain everything that is being done and why.
- Based on your discussion with the clinician and your examination, the clinician may decide to treat you at your visit before your results come back.
- If any tests come back positive and the Clinician has not treated you, the nurse will call you and inform you of your results and arrange a time to return to the Health Department for treatment.
How long does it take: Expect for your visit to take a minimum of 1 hour. As clients are seeking STI services, there may be problems that arise causing a longer wait. Please understand we will spend as much time with you as needed.
Cost: Most insurances are accepted. Maryland residents without insurance may be charged for services based on a sliding scale fee determined by family size and income. Proof of income must be provided to slide fees. Onsite enrollment for Maryland Medical Assistance is available. Services for anyone 18 and under are free of charge.
