WHAT WILL IT COST?
Most pharmacies charge a small visit fee for this service -- this visit fee is generally not covered by insurance, but you can use your health savings account. You can use your insurance to pay for medications prescribed by a pharmacist. Most insurance plans cover birth control with no patient copay.
The vaginal ring.
For birth control or other uses such as acne, endometriosis, polycystic ovaries, fibroids, menstrual migraines, mood disorders, or skipping periods.
DO I NEED AN EXAM?
No physical exam needed. Just fill out a health history form and review with the pharmacist. The pharmacist may need to check your blood pressure. Let the pharmacist know if you have any preferences for your birth control -- like less acne, skipping periods, or a non-daily method.
Birth control should be accessible and expanding access directly in pharmacies is one way to accomplish that. Thanks to new state laws in some states, specially trained pharmacists can prescribe birth control for women of all ages. Pharmacists are experts when it comes to safe and effective use of medicines.
It's All About You
Your pharmacist can help you find the best -- and most affordable -- birth control option to fit your individual preferences.
Going to the pharmacy directly for your birth control is a great option for you if you're between insurances, doctors, or just want a convenient visit with a local doctor.

there's just so many pharmacies around.
Love it here. Came in for the birth control consultation. I was in and out in less than 20 mins and got what I needed. The staff [was] great, and informative as well.
