How much does Nurx cost?

Birth Control

Consultation

Anyone who requests a birth control prescription will be charged a $15 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.

Please note that at this time, we do not submit claims to insurance for the medical consult fee.

Medication

For those with health insurance, your prescription will be free in most cases as it will be covered by your health insurance. Insurance companies set the “copay” for prescriptions and depending on your plan and the prescription, this will usually be $0. Please connect with your insurance company if you would like to learn more about your copay. If you do have a copay, Nurx will authorize a $30 amount at checkout and it will only be charged if you have a copay. If your copay is over $30 you will receive a notification.

For those without insurance, Nurx offers birth control brands that start at $15 per month. If you’d like a price estimate for a specific brand or type of birth control, please connect with our team at support@nurx.co.

PrEP

Consultation

Anyone who requests a PrEP evaluation will be charged a $15 consultation fee. This covers your online medical consultation and review of your lab test results, and includes unlimited messaging about PrEP with our medical team until your next renewal — so you can ask questions about your lab tests or medication any time during that period. At this time, we do not submit claims to insurance for this consult fee. Each time you order a new test kit and evaluation for renewal of your prescription you will be charged a $15 medical consultation fee.

Please note that at this time, we do not submit claims to insurance for the medical consult fee.

Medication

Truvada for PrEP is an expensive medication, but we’re proud of the fact that 99% of Nurx PrEP patients pay nothing out-of-pocket for their medication.

Here’s how this works: Our team will bill your insurance. We’ll also walk you through the process of enrolling in any co-pay or patient assistance programs that may apply. In many cases these programs cover 100% of the cost for the medication, meaning the out-of-pocket cost for Truvada for PrEP is $0.

If you’d like to learn more about how much PrEP will cost for you, please connect with our team at support@nurx.co.

Home Test Kit

Before you begin PrEP you must get lab tests to confirm that you are HIV negative and have healthy kidneys. You’ll re-do these tests every three months after beginning PrEP. Our preferred testing option is home-based lab testing through our partner lab, which is an option in every state we are available in except for New York. We are committed to providing a convenient and cost-effective home testing option for our PrEP patients.

For those paying without insurance:

$164 for comprehensive testing, which includes all of the necessary tests to get on PrEP + extra testing for additional sexually transmitted infections (STIs); OR
$94 for basic testing which includes all of the testing necessary to get on and stay on PrEP

For those paying with insurance:

Once your tests have been processed by our partner lab, they will bill your insurance and you will be responsible for any out-of-pocket costs including copays and deductibles associated with your plan.

PLEASE BE ADVISED: If you receive a bill, it will come directly from our lab partner, Molecular Testing Labs. An Explanation of Benefits from your insurance company regarding the lab services will not list us, but rather Molecular Testing Labs or their affiliates.

Non-Home Testing

If you’d prefer not to do home testing you are welcome to have your labs done at a local lab like LabCorp or Quest. Once you have submitted your request for PrEP, simply message us and tell us that you would like lab testing at LabCorp or Quest. Pricing at local labs is dependent on your insurance coverage. We recommend calling your insurance company in advance to confirm whether LabCorp or Quest is the in-network laboratory.

If you contact your insurance company to clarify your coverage for laboratory testing, we’d recommend asking them the following questions:

  • Do I have to use an in-network lab for lab testing?
  • If yes: What laboratories are covered?
  • Is Molecular Testing Labs covered?
  • Do I have a deductible for lab testing?

If your insurance company asks, tell them these are the tests that will be ordered for PrEP: HIV 4th generation antibody/antigen test, serum creatinine, hepatitis B surface antigen (all required), and (optionally) syphilis, gonorrhea and chlamydia testing (rectal swab, throat swab, urine collection).

STI Testing

Consultation

Anyone who requests an STI Home Test Kit will be charged a $15 consultation fee. The consultation fee provides patients with unlimited access to the Nurx medical team regarding their STI results.

Home Test Kits

Without health insurance, Basics Covered costs $150; Healthy Woman costs $190, and Full Control costs $220. These prices include the kit, the lab testing, and shipping both ways.

With health insurance, each test kit costs $75 and any applicable copays or deductibles. If you pay with insurance, your out-of pocket-expense will depend on whether our partner lab, Molecular Testing Labs, is in-network with your insurance and on your specific plan’s coverage. Once you’ve submitted your samples, MTL will then bill your insurance for the lab services – and you will only be responsible for any out of pocket costs. Please check here to see if your insurance is in-network: What insurance plans have Molecular Testing Labs in-network?

If your insurance is out-of-network with Molecular Testings Labs then you will be billed a negotiated rate of $99 for lab testing and the lab will bill you directly.

HPV Testing

This covers your online medical consultation by a Nurx medical provider and includes unlimited messaging about your HPV test with our medical team for one year — so you can ask questions at any time during that period. At this time, we do not submit claims to insurance for this medical consult fee.

Please note that at this time, we do not submit claims to insurance for the medical consult fee.

Home Test Kit

Herpes Treatment

Medical Consultation

After you answer questions about your health you pay $15 for a medical consultation, during which a member of our healthcare team reviews your health profile and (if appropriate) writes you a prescription. The price of the medical consultation includes unlimited follow-up with the Nurx provider team for a year, so you can ask questions about herpes or your prescription.

Medication

If you pay with insurance, we will bill your insurance directly for your medication and the price you pay will depend on the specifics of your plan. Because valacyclovir is a generic medication your copay (if you have one) should be quite affordable.

If you do not pay with insurance and pay directly for the medication it costs $45 for a 3-month supply of outbreak treatment (meaning you only take the medication when you experience an outbreak or feel one coming on). It costs $75 for a 3-month supply of preventive therapy (meaning that you take a pill every day to prevent outbreaks*). If you have both oral and genital herpes and need outbreak treatment the price will be $60 for a 3-month supply. Shipping is always free.

Headache & Migraine Treatment

Medical Consultation

To receive headache care through Nurx, our patients pay $60 for an initial consultation with our medical team. This includes our licensed providers reviewing their evaluation, writing prescriptions, conducting regular check-ins, and modifying their personalized treatment plan as needed. The $60 consultation is paid when the patient submits their intake information and video exam for evaluation, and is not covered by insurance. Considering that many people who experience migraines and tension headaches visit an in-person provider several times a year, the price of one year of care through Nurx is a cost-effective way of providing safe and high-quality care. The consultation price does not include medication.

Medication

If you have insurance, Nurx will bill your plan directly and you will only owe the copay (if any) which will depend on your individual plan. If you pay out-of-pocket, Nurx offers affordable pricing ranging from $25-$70 per month depending on your prescriptions.

Shipping

We ship a three-month supply of your medication for free. If you receive a one-month supply (whether by choice or because your insurance plan will only pay for one month of medication at a time), we charge an additional $5 per month for extra processing.

You may also message our medical team any time over the course of the year to ask questions or request prescription changes. The $35 is paid when you submit your request for treatment and is not covered by insurance, though you may be able to pay for it with FSA or HSA funds.

Medication

We will bill insurance (if you have it) for your medications, and the copay (if any) will depend on your particular plan. If you do not have insurance we offer transparent out-of-pocket pricing, which starts at $25/month for prescription topical medication and $15-30/month for prescription oral treatments.

COVID Testing

Each test costs $65 with free shipping, or you can pay extra for expedited shipping.

 

*A Nurx medical provider may prescribe valacyclovir with instructions to take it every day to prevent oral herpes outbreaks. This is called “suppressive” treatment and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not yet approved valacyclovir as a suppressive treatment for oral herpes, which means this is an “off label” use of the medication. It is legal and not uncommon for physicians to prescribe FDA-approved medications for off-label uses if they conclude that it is the ideal course of treatment for their patients. Please message your Nurx provider if you have questions about taking valacyclovir daily for oral herpes prevention.
