Confidential visits

The state of Illinois lets you make your own appointments for confidential services if you are 12 years or older. That means you don’t need permission from your parents or guardians to see a medical provider for the following reasons:

  • Contraception – birth control and condoms
  • Pregnancy testing and prenatal care
  • Sexually transmitted infections (STI) testing and treatment
  • HIV testing and treatment
  • Mental/behavioral healthcare
  • Alcohol or other substance use

Depending on the visit, these may be in person or via telehealth.
