Tri-Cap to reopen clinics

From Local Sources

JASPER — Tri-Cap family planning clinics, located in Jasper and Evansville, have continued to serve clients throughout COVID-19. Services are primarily available via phone to protect staff and clients from the virus. Beginning June 1, the clinics will again allow clients inside the building for pap smears, IUDs, Nexplanon, and other physical needs.

The clinics re taking extra precautions:

• To limit traffic in the waiting room, clients will check in from their car. When they arrive, they are asked to call the office to begin their appointment.

• In most cases only the patient will be allowed to enter. For teens and those who require a support person, one adult may be allowed. No children will be allowed.

• All patients and their support person must wear a mask throughout the entire visit.

• Patients are asked to arrive 30 minutes early and be prepared to fill out paperwork in their car.

• Tri-Cap is performing diligent hand washing and extra cleaning precautions of surfaces and instruments.

• All patients and their support person will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms prior to entry.

Tri-Cap recognizes that your household income or insurance coverage may have been impacted by COVID-19. Patients may be eligible for reduced fees, medications, and/or free insurance enrollment assistance. Tri-Cap accepts all forms of health insurance.

Call the Jasper office at 812-482-2233, ext 144, or the Evansville office at 428-2189, ext 1 for an appointment.
