The morning after pill typically costs between $30 and $50. If you have health insurance, this may cover some of the cost.
Where Can I Get Emergency Contraception?
There are two primary types of morning after pills. Pills like Plan B One-Step use levonorgestrel to stop ovulation. This type of medication is available over-the-counter in most places, and online. The emergency contraception pill Ella uses ulipristal acetate to stop the body from releasing an egg. This type of pill is only available by prescription. Nurx™ medical providers can help you obtain either Plan B One-Step or Ella.
Can I Use My Insurance Through Nurx?
Yes, Nurx works with many health insurance companies including United Health Care, Aetna, Anthem, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and others. Our support team can help you determine whether we can work with your insurance provider and give you more information on what emergency contraception will cost.
When Should I Use Emergency Contraception?
You should take the morning after pill as soon as possible after having unprotected sex. Plan B One-Step is effective for up to three days after having sex, and Ella can work up to five days after sex. However, both pills are more effective when taken within the first 24 hours. Contact your Nurx healthcare provider and we can call in a prescription for either Ella or Plan B One-Step to your nearest pharmacy so you can take the pill promptly.
