Nebraska, we’ve got great news: You’re the next state to get easy and affordable access to essential sensitive and sexual healthcare through Nurx. That means as of this week men and women of the Cornhusker state can get birth control, PrEP, home STI testing, and cervical cancer screening from the comfort and privacy of home.
When Nebraskans get care through Nurx you’ll be directly connected with a Nebraska-licensed provider, like Dr. Courtney Sherman, NP. “The Nurx medical team is so excited to help meet your personal medical needs,” says Courtney. “We provide expert care with privacy and sensitivity, and we cannot wait to meet you!”
Better Access to Women’s Healthcare
The ability for Nebraska women to get birth control through Nurx is more important than ever, as the federal government’s rules about which women’s healthcare providers can receive Title X funding are predicted to lead to reproductive health clinics closing.
Nurx is committed to making birth control affordable and accessible. How it works: Sign up on the Nurx website or mobile app and a Nebraska-licensed medical provider will determine the right medication for you. Many of the birth control brands we prescribe are free with insurance (we’ll bill your plan directly) and if you’re among the one in ten Nebraska women who don’t have insurance, you can choose from many pill formulas that cost just $15 per month — check out our birth control pricing chart to learn more. We deliver to your door for free in a discreet package.
Need the “morning after pill” like Ella or Plan B in Nebraska? We’ve got you — our medical providers prescribe emergency contraception. If you need it right away our medical team can call the prescription in to a local pharmacy, or if you just want EC on hand we’ll send it to your door.
We also offer Nebraska women an easy way to protect themselves from cervical cancer when they’re between Ob-Gyn appointments: Our HPV Home Test Kit. The simple swab test is painless and takes just minutes. Return it in the prepaid envelope and we’ll test you for the 14 strains of the HPV virus that can lead to cervical cancer. Our medical team will let you know whether you need follow-up care or if you can wait a few years for your next screening.
Making STI Testing and HIV Prevention Easier in Nebraska
Another first for Nebraskans: The ability to get PrEP discreetly from the privacy and convenience of home. PrEP is a daily pill that is up to 99% effective at preventing HIV and Nurx is the only company that allows people in Nebraska to consult with a provider to see if PrEP is right for them, complete the necessary lab tests at home, and have PrEP delivered in discreet packaging – no trips to the clinic or lab required.
Sexually active people should be tested for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) once a year (and more often if you have new partners or are unsure of a partner’s status), and Nurx makes it private and convenient with our STI Home Test Kits. These three kits offer tests for common STIs including chlamydia, gonorrhea, HIV, and more, and include the option to do throat and rectal testing.
