Birth Control Pills

Dear Dr N- I am post partum and not nursing anymore and would like to know if bc pills are covered by my insurance company? What are my options for birth control? Not ready to have another.

Dear Not Ready- Thanks for asking. There usually are a variety of pills on the insurance ‘formulary’ that allow a low copay such as $10 but you and or you provider have to figure out which one it is because it varies from plan to plan. There is also some good coverage for Mirena or ParaGard IUD, Implanon, Injectable contraception or even a diaphram which people are not using much anymore. Talk to your provider about your needs and what would work best for you! Dr N
