A Step Ahead Foundation is here to make sure that you never get a bill for your birth control appointment through us. We do this by serving as the payer of last resort. That means the clinic will charge TennCare, Title X or your private insurance but if there are any left over costs A Step Ahead Foundation will pay them.
