Insurance

City health centers accept Medicare, Medicaid (Medical Assistance) and most insurance and HMO plans. If you are uninsured, we charge a small fee based on family size and income.

We can help you apply for health insurance you can afford.

As a registered patient, you will get your own personal doctor. It's a much better way to get medical care than going from doctor to doctor or rushing to the emergency room when something goes wrong.

HIV Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP)

Strawberry Mansion Health Center is now enrolling participants in an HIV prevention study, the Sustainable Health Center Implementation PrEP Pilot (SHIPP). Protect your health and stay HIV-free with PrEP!

About the study

SHIPP is an HIV prevention study conducted by the Department of Public Health in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Gilead Sciences. The SHIPP study focuses on a new HIV prevention method called Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP). With PrEP, people who do not have HIV take a daily pill to reduce their risk of infection. The goal of the SHIPP study is to learn how PrEP can be used to reduce new HIV infections in our communities.

Study participants will see one of our medical providers for routine check-ups and be asked to complete occasional surveys.

Am I eligible?

The SHIPP study focuses on women, but any adult (18+) who is currently HIV-negative and at risk of infection is welcome to participate. Patients at Strawberry Mansion also have the option to receive PrEP outside of the study.
