Only youth with appointments can be transported to the clinic.  If the partner does not have an appointment, they will not be transported.

We offer confidential services and no information about the appointment will be released without prior written approval from client.

Are my teachers and classmates going to find out?
We work very closely with the school nurse, counselors, and case workers to call the students out of class to maintain confidentiality.  Students will check themselves out and are given a return slip back to class when they return to school.

Who will transport the student?
Staff from Fresno EOC Health and Dental Services work in pairs (male and female) to transport youth in a white unmarked van.  Staff will carry a badge for identification purposes. All drivers have been fingerprinted and have had a background check.

Is it Free?
The transportation is free. All the reproductive healthcare services will be covered under Family PACT, if eligible.

Do I have to use my personal insurance for reproductive health care?
No, youth can decide to have their reproductive health care services covered under Family PACT to ensure confidentiality.
