Expanded Family Planning Services Available with New Contraceptive Options

A woman in a red top smiles and holds her finger to her cheek like she is pondering a decision. Six hands surround her, each holding a different birth control method.

The Talbot County Health Department is pleased to announce an expansion in the department’s offering of clinical services to now include contraceptives. In conjunction with the opening of the Health Department’s new facility in early July, county residents will now have access to a wide range of birth control options to help meet their reproductive health needs.

The new contraceptive offerings include:

  • Oral Contraceptives.
  • Birth Control Injections – A shot administered once every 3 months that provides safe, effective birth control.
  • Insertable Contraceptives.
  • Emergency Contraceptive Pills – Plan B and other levonorgestrel pills that can be taken after unprotected sex to reduce the risk of pregnancy.

“We’re committed to ensuring all Talbot County residents have access to the full range of FDA-approved contraceptive methods,” said Heather Sconce, Director of Clinical Services. “These new options allow us to provide more comprehensive family planning and reproductive health services.”

All contraceptive products and procedures will be available by appointment at the Talbot County Health Department’s new facility located at 510 Cadmus Lane in Easton. The Health Department accepts Medicare, Medicaid and some private insurances and self-pay. A sliding fee scale is available for services based on eligibility criteria, including insurance status and age.
