Currently, all of our CVS Pharmacy locations in California, Idaho, Washington, Hawaii, Michigan, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Nebraska and Montana can help you get a birth control prescription.
There is an annual consultation fee of $39 that covers the cost of the pharmacist consultation, the pharmacist writing the prescription for hormonal birth control as well as unlimited consultations up to one full year. There may also be an additional cost for the medication the pharmacist prescribes. If after the consultation the pharmacist determines you are not eligible to receive a prescription, there would not be a consultation fee charged to you.
When you enter the pharmacy, walk right up to the consultation window and let the pharmacist know you would like a birth control consultation. You will then complete a brief health screening form. If you have a mobile device, you can scan a QR code at the counter to complete the health screening. If you don't have one, the pharmacist will provide you with a paper version of the screening. You will then take a seat in the waiting area to complete the screening and then have your blood pressure taken. Next, the pharmacist will discuss the results of your health screening with you and determine if you are eligible to receive birth control at the pharmacy. If so, the pharmacist will review different birth control options with you.
*FOR BIRTH CONTROL: Prescriptions available only for hormonal birth control contraception. Consultation required and available only when a licensed pharmacist is on duty. Patients must be 18 years or older. Some patients may not be eligible based on current or past health conditions. Some patients may need to consult with their primary care physician or other health care provider to obtain a prescription for birth control. $39 consultation fee is a one-time annual fee and includes unlimited consultations with a CVS pharmacist, for a period of one year from the date of the initial consultation. $39 fee will be waived if CVS is unable to prescribe birth control. Medicaid, Medicare and other government program beneficiaries are not eligible. Program participants may obtain coverage by seeking these services through other enrolled providers, such as their primary care physician. See pharmacist for details.

In some instances, service may be covered by insurance. Talk to the pharmacist to learn more about coverage.
The contraceptive sponge, or birth control sponge, is a disk made of foam. You put it far up into your vagina to protect your cervix from sperm. The sponge contains spermicide for extra protection. But it doesn't keep you safe from STIs.
If you had sex without using birth control, or your birth control failed, you may want to use emergency contraception to avoid pregnancy. You can get some types of emergency contraception pills, known as morning-after pills, at most pharmacies without a prescription.
The reason? Hormones used in birth control can increase blood pressure. This is more likely to happen in the first couple of months (and this is the best way to make sure that hormonal birth control is safe and right for you).
If you are already on hormonal birth control and are just looking to switch brands, we will give you a one-year refill as long as you have a recent normal blood pressure reading. We can help you find locations that offer free readings. Usually these are available at nearby pharmacies.
We prescribe three types of birth control online: patches, pills and rings. Getting a birth control prescription online is a convenient option, especially for people who need short-term contraception while evaluating long-term contraceptive options.
Since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade and set off a cascade of abortion bans around the country, access to contraception has taken on increased importance. To get birth control pills and other hormonal contraceptives in the U.S., patients still need a prescription. But now birth control pills are one step closer to being available over the counter.
Oral contraceptives were first approved by the FDA more than 60 years ago, and they are the most popular non-permanent method of birth control in the U.S. The pills are already available over the counter in more than 100 countries. And recent polling from Data for Progress shows that the majority of American voters across party lines support making birth control pills available without a prescription in the U.S.
No company has previously submitted an application to the FDA to move its birth control pill over the counter. HRA Pharma has been working toward its application for about seven years. Another company called Cadence Health has been working with the FDA for about five years to ready an over-the-counter pill that contains both estrogen and progestin, according to a company spokesperson, and has not yet submitted its application.
The most widely used birth control method, the pill is most effective when taken regularly, every day. Besides preventing pregnancy, the pill can improve acne, reduce symptoms of PMS, and help make periods more regular, less painful, and lighter in flow.
The most low maintenance birth control option, the ring is a small, flexible ring inserted into your vagina. The ring is worn for 3 weeks at a time. After 3 weeks, you take a 1 week break for your period before putting in a new ring.
You inject the birth control shot in your stomach or thigh area every 3 months. Because it doesn't contain estrogen, the shot is popular with people who have had negative side effects on estrogen-based birth control or are breastfeeding. It's also a good option if you have difficulty taking a daily pill.
Founded in 2015, Nurx has provided care to more than 1 million + patients. Our dedicated and caring team of medical providers are birth control experts with deep experience providing care via telehealth. Research published in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine examined telecontraception services including Nurx and found that receiving birth control through telehealth is as safe as or safer than in-person care.
Anyone who requests a birth control prescription will be charged a $25 consultation fee. This includes unlimited messaging with our medical team about your birth control for one year so you can request prescription changes or ask questions, any time during that period. At this time, we do not submit claims to insurance for the medical consult fee. Patients will need to complete a new annual consultation, including any related fees, when a prescription is up for renewal.
3. We deliver your medication. Our pharmacy fills your birth control prescription and sends a three-month supply straight to your doorstep. Our prescriptions come in discreet, unmarked packaging in order to protect your privacy. Shipping is always free.
We accept most forms of private health insurance, but we also work hard to ensure that those without insurance can afford their birth control. We can provide some forms of birth control to uninsured people for as little as $15 per month.
In addition to carrying the name brands of all major birth control methods, we also offer a number of generic varieties. Generic birth control contains the same active ingredients as its brand-name counterparts, but its cost can be significantly lower.
Nurx offers free shipping for contraceptives, delivered by USPS via 1-3 day priority shipping or first class mail for some refill orders. No signature is required for delivery of birth control. The packaging is generally discreet, and there is no mention of Nurx or a pharmacy on the outside of the envelope.
We are proud to offer more than 100 types of birth control, including name brand and generic pills plus the shot, patch and vaginal ring. We are happy to try to order specific brands if you request them as well.
If you have a birth control prescription from another doctor, please submit a new request for birth control at nurx.com. Our Nurx Medical Team will be able to better help you after you answer some basic health questions.
Condoms, diaphragms, sponges, and other forms of physical birth control prevent sperm from reaching the egg. Hormonal birth control prevents ovulation and keeps the egg from ever getting released in the first place.
Certain bodies and lifestyles work better with some forms of birth control than others. Of the methods we offer at Nurx, all are highly effective: When used perfectly, each of our options has a success rate of up to 99%.
Although hormonal birth control options are great in nearly all cases, using them correctly can require a bit of planning. Starting birth control can bring about all sorts of bodily changes, and whatever method you choose needs to be used regularly in order to work properly.
The combination pill must be taken every day in order to be effective, and the minipill has to be taken every day in the same three hour window. For this reason, birth control pills are great for people who can create a routine and stick to it completely.
Some people take birth control pills for reasons other than preventing pregnancy, such as reducing unwanted bleeding. Certain brands of the pill, such as Yaz, can even be used to treat mild forms of acne.
On March 27, 2019, the Utah Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) issued a statewide standing order allowing pharmacists to dispense contraceptive pills, patch, or ring to women ages 18 or older. Through this standing order, any woman can walk into a participating pharmacy and purchase hormonal contraception without needing a prescription. Women will be able to receive birth control pills, contraceptive patches, or vaginal rings from participating pharmacists after they complete a health history form, have their blood pressure taken, and talk with the pharmacist about which contraceptive method will work best for them. Patients will still be responsible for covering the cost of their medications and the consultation with the pharmacist; either by utilizing insurance coverage or paying out of their pocket. Women will be required to provide proof of a visit with their women's health care provider every two years. To see a copy of the standing order, click here. 041b061a72
