    If you have insurance and are seeing one of our providers for confidential treatment, we will make sure that your insurance does not notify your parent or guardian of your visit. Please call us at 312.666.3494 if you have any questions about confidentiality.

    Please contact the Erie Teen Center at 312.666.3494 to speak to one of our staff about the housing, education, and medical resources we can provide to you.

  • At Erie Family Health Center we believe health care is a right, not a privilege.  It is our goal to provide high quality health care regardless of a patient’s ability to pay.  At the Erie Teen Center we accept many types of insurance, and we also have programs that you may qualify for that will cover the cost of your service.

    If you are uninsured and eligible for insurance, we have staff that will help guide you through the enrollment process.

    But don’t let the cost make you nervous!  We will work with you to ensure you get the services you need and make arrangements with you should you have a small balance to pay.
