What's the Cost of the Morning-After Pill for Emergency Contraception
Where is the best place to get the morning-after pill? How much will it cost?
The cost of emergency contraception can vary, depending on several factors, including whether you need a prescription, which product you buy, where you buy it, and other associated costs. The cost can range anywhere from $10 to $80 for most emergency contraceptive pills.
Family planning clinics, such as Planned Parenthood, usually charge less than private healthcare providers and pharmacies. Some healthcare centers are able to charge according to your income. Most accept health insurance. If you qualify, Medicaid or other state programs may lower your healthcare costs.
You must show proof of age with a government-issued identification, such as a driver's license, in order to buy these OTC products. It's a good idea to call ahead to the pharmacy to see if they carry these medications. The selection may vary from pharmacy to pharmacy. The cost may vary between all of the available locations.
