At Tshwane women clinic, we are committed to your health and ensuring that you receive that highest quality OB/GYN care. We go out of our way to ensure that you are able to use ALL of the benefits you are entitled to under your insurance (we accept Medicaid and most insurances). If you do not have health insurance, we will find ways for you to be seen at the lowest possible cost or no cost (free abortion) to you.

CAN I PAY CASH?

Some patients do not feel comfortable using their insurance for confidentiality reasons. While Tshwane women clinic adheres to the strictest standards of confidentiality and HIPPA laws, we understand that some patients may not want a record of elective termination of pregnancy on their insurance statements. We offer reduced rates to patients paying out of pocket. When you call to make your appointment, we can discuss all out of pocket fees with you before you come into the office.
