Do I need a prescription for a morning-after pill?

You’ll need a prescription for ulipristal acetate (ella), a type of emergency birth control that can delay or prevent ovulation when taken within 5 days (120 hours) of having unprotected sex or experiencing a contraceptive failure.

You won’t need a prescription for levonorgestrel (Plan B, My Way, and others), a type of emergency birth control that can prevent ovulation when taken within 3 days (72 hours) of having unprotected sex or experiencing a contraceptive failure.

Both types of medication are FDA-approved to prevent pregnancy, though neither drug is 100% effective.

How much does the morning-after pill cost?

Most major insurance plans cover the cost of ulipristal acetate (ella). The medication’s out-of-pocket cost is about $40 to $50. Levonorgestrel (Plan B, My Way, and others) is available over the counter at many pharmacies and online for $50 or less.*

Can I use my health insurance for Pay-per-visit?
Amazon One Medical doesn't accept health insurance for Pay-per-visit care. You can submit a claim to your insurance provider for reimbursement, but we can’t guarantee they’ll reimburse you for your one-time virtual visit.

If you normally use insurance to pay for your medications, you can do that with medications prescribed through all Amazon One Medical services. Amazon Pharmacy accepts most insurance plans. For other pharmacies, please talk with your pharmacy directly about insurance coverage. The cost of medication isn’t included in the cost of your visit.
What happens if my provider can't diagnose or treat my health issue through Amazon One Medical Pay-per-visit?
If your provider can’t diagnose or treat your health issue through Pay-per-visit, they may recommend that you see a primary care provider or a specialist for in-person care. If that happens, you won't be charged.

About ella and emergency birth control

What do I need to request a prescription for ella?
To determine if ella is medically appropriate for you, your Amazon One Medical provider will need to know certain health information like your height and weight, as body mass index (BMI) can affect how well the morning-after pill works.

Your provider will also need the name of a local pharmacy of your choice where they can send your ella prescription for immediate fulfillment. The cost of your prescribed medication may be covered by health insurance.
Will ella terminate an existing pregnancy?
No. ella is not an abortion medication. Emergency contraception can prevent pregnancy, but it won't terminate an existing pregnancy.

If you've had signs or symptoms of pregnancy since your last menstrual period, you'll need to confirm that you're not pregnant before you can take ella. Healthcare providers won't prescribe ella if you're pregnant because the medication has a small risk of harming a fetus.

If you have questions about mifepristone, the medication that causes medical abortions, you'll need to see a primary care provider for guidance.
Can emergency birth control prevent sexually transmitted infections (STIs)?
No. If you've had unprotected sex and are concerned about STIs, you'll still need to see a primary care provider for an in-person evaluation. We hope you find the care you need.
Can I use ella for routine birth control?
No. Emergency birth control isn't recommended for routine use. For birth control that can be taken regularly to prevent pregnancy, we recommend that you start from Amazon One Medical's Birth control page.
Will taking ella affect my menstrual cycle?
Maybe. After taking ella, your period may occur a few days earlier or later than usual.
Will I have to stop taking my other medications in order to take ella?
Certain medications and supplements may affect how well emergency contraception works, including the following:
• Blood thinners (anticoagulants) like warfarin (Coumadin)
• Estrogen-lowering medication like anastrozole (Arimidex) and letrozole (Femara)
• Hormonal birth control
• Rifampin (Rifadin) or daily antibiotics
• Seizure medications like phenytoin, carbamazepine, and lamictal
Your Amazon One Medical provider will review your health information and let you know if you'll need to pause or stop other therapies before you take ella.
