What is Kindbody?
Kindbody is a gynecology, fertility, and family-building benefit that is reinventing the patient experience (think: warm and modern clinics, doctors who actually listen, gowns that don’t rip when you sneeze, and an online patient portal for easy access to medical records, scheduling, and your care team).
Their doctors are here to help you— and your eligible spouse and children 18+ — with everything from annual check-ups and UTIs to egg freezing, IVF, and support with adoption, donors, and surrogacy.
Why should I use Kindbody?
You should take advantage of Kindbody to:
Access World-Class Healthcare
When it comes to gynecology, fertility, and family planning, you and your dependents can rely on Kindbody’s experts for better health outcomes. From best-in-class physicians and care navigators to warm and modern clinics, educational content, how-to’s, support groups, and live events, they’ve got your back.
Enjoy lower costs, on us
Get the care you deserve without worrying about the price tag. Because Kindbody is a direct provider of care, they can offer prices lower than the norm, and Justworks members can also enjoy 20% off services not billable to insurance. Kindbody’s care navigators can help you understand the full cost of services upfront — because surprise bills are less fun than surprise parties.
Feel Seen and Supported
Kindbody offers culturally competent care regardless of sex, gender, sexual orientation, or relationship status so you can feel confident that you’ll feel heard and understood. They provide donor, adoption, and surrogacy support for single and LGBTQ+ patients who want to become parents, and 50% of their doctors identify as BIPOC.

What kind of services do they provide?
You can come to Kindbody for general preventative care, like your annual check-ups. They got you covered for things like breast exams, pap smears, screenings, pelvic exams, and contraception. They can also help with ongoing support for issues like PCOS, Endometriosis, and Fibroids or for more urgent concerns like UTIs, yeast infections, irregular bleeding, and pelvic pain.
Before taking advantage of these types of services, just be sure to check with Kindbody and confirm that your medical plan is in-network.

What if I don’t want to start a family right now?
Kindbody offers a full spectrum of services beyond family planning. If you’re in-network with them, you can take advantage of their gynecology services which include everything from annual check-ups to menopause support.
Examples of when you can reach out to Kindbody outside of the family building:
- You have a UTI or yeast infection
- You want to talk about getting on birth control vs. other contraception options
- You’re concerned about a potential STI
- Your periods are irregular or painful
- You have PCOS, Endometriosis, or Fibroids
- And so much more
Even if you’re not looking to start a family now, you may still choose to talk to a doctor about your fertility if you think you may want to build a family down the line. For example, Kindbody also offers fertility preservation services, like egg freezing.
Does Kindbody provide services for queer couples and transgender individuals?
Yes! Kindbody’s mission is to make family building a reality for everyone regardless of sexual orientation, relationship status, or gender identity. Therefore, they support all genders and paths to parenthood, including adoption, donor, and surrogacy, and have providers trained on the unique needs specific to the LGBTQ+ community.
Are there specialists for male fertility issues?
Yes! Kindbody’s male fertility specialists are uniquely trained to assess and evaluate male fertility-related issues.
I saw on Kindbody’s website that they currently aren’t accepting new gynecology patients — is this true for Justworks members?
No! Justworks members can still use Kindbody’s gynecology services; simply book an appointment from your patient portal after signing up.
Where are the Kindbody clinics located?
Kindbody has clinics conveniently located across the country, with plans to open more offices. Current city locations include: Atlanta, Aurora, Austin, Bentonville, Century City, Chicago, Crest Hill, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Glenview, Geneva, Hoffman Estates, Houston, Minneapolis, Milwaukee, New York City, O’Fallon, Orlando, Portland, Princeton, San Francisco, Santa Monica, Silicon Valley, St Louis, Swansea, and Washington DC.
Can I still use Kindbody if I’m not located near a clinic?
Absolutely! Regardless of where you’re located, you can take advantage of Kindbody’s virtual consultations, which include ongoing support for adoption and donor services and coaching sessions on wellness topics like meditation, mental health, nutrition, doula support, lactation guidance, return-to-work, sleep training, and more.
There are also virtual events, support groups, and educational resources, no matter where you are in your wellness journey.
How much does Kindbody cost?
Kindbody is on a mission to make best-in-class care accessible for all. And that starts with offering competitive rates. There is no membership fee, and they’re in-network with most insurance plans through Justworks PEO, so your normal copay and deductible will apply.
The Care Navigators at Kindbody can look into your specific plan and tell you exactly how much each service will cost so there are no surprises. Just message them in the patient portal or email email@example.com.
To get a better idea of the ballpark, employees can check out their cash rates here — just know that prices will vary, especially since those rates don’t take into account what insurance will cover, and remember that because you’re a Justworks member, you’ll also save 20% on services not billed through insurance.
How do I pay for services?
Any out-of-pocket expenses will be paid directly to Kindbody at the time of receiving the service. Kindbody is in-network with most insurance carriers for standard OB-GYN health and preventative care services (for example, pap tests, assessments, etc.). Thus the related deductibles and co-pays apply. Justworks members can also enjoy 20% off Kindbody services not billed through insurance, and there is no membership fee. You can also pay using FSA/HSA dollars.
How do I know if a service is covered by insurance?
Kindbody is in-network with most Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and UnitedHealthcare medical plans for standard OB-GYN health and preventative care services (for example, pap tests). Thus the related deductibles and co-pays apply. Some exceptions may apply.
Moreover, your Kindbody Care Navigator can look at your specific medical plan and tell you if a service is covered and the all-in cost you can expect to pay.

Who’s eligible for Kindbody?
