Your sexual health is a key factor in your overall health, but visiting doctors and waiting in line for prescriptions is time-consuming and sometimes uncomfortable or downright embarrassing. Nurx puts you in control of your sexual health by offering online medical consultations and home delivery of birth control medications—including emergency contraceptives—as well as HIV PrEP and HPV test kits.

The Nurx medical team includes doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, and physician assistants who provide non-judgmental care. They believe in honest communication, and your consultation fee (an amazingly low $12) allows you to message with the medical team when you have questions or need prescription changes. Nurx doesn’t bill insurance companies for the consult, so you’ll have to pay that out of pocket, but $12 is probably way less than your copay would be for an in-person consultation.

If you have insurance, Nurx will bill your insurance company for your medications, and you’ll just have to pay the copay if there is one. The company accepts most private health insurance, including all the major insurers. Nurx also accepts Medicaid from several large states, including Texas, California, and Illinois.

You can also pay for the medications yourself if you don’t have insurance. Nurx is upfront about costs, so you won’t be in for any surprises when you see the bill. There are also plenty of choices, with more than 50 contraceptives available through Nurx, including name brand-name and generic birth control pills and patches.

The process is simple. Go online and answer a few questions about yourself and your insurance if you have any. A doctor located in your state will review the information and write your prescription, and Nurx will deliver it. Everything is quick and discrete.
