This is Why There’s an App for Birth Control
We live in an on-demand world now. Between Lyft and Uber and getting my Thai food delivered in 20 minutes, we can do practically anything from our phones.
So when I learned about PlushCare — an app that allows you to face-to-face with a doctor from your phone, I wasn’t surprised.
After I came back from a relaxing vacation (as you can see above), I joined the PlushCare Operations Team. I immediately began thinking about the possibilities for this awesome product.
Birth control was number one on my list.
Getting a birth control prescription is a huge pain. I’ve waited in a doctor’s office for three hours to get a simple prescription for something I knew I needed.
And I’m pretty sure I’m not alone here. Some women even have it worse than me. Those living in a “birth control desert” – rural places not near doctor’s offices – have an even more difficult time getting the pill. And to anyone living in a conservative part of the country that isn’t keen on prescribing or stocking the pill: I salute you.
Between our confusing healthcare system and insurance, birth control feels less accessible than ever. Heck, the Supreme Court ruled in 2015 that employer insurance didn’t have to cover birth control if the company didn’t want to. Plus, many women are unsatisfied with their existing birth control as it is — yes those side effects are real.
PlushCare is helping solve this headache by giving consumers on-demand access to healthcare.
- Book an appointment — it’s FREE with insurance (use “freebc” at checkout) and just $99 without insurance.
- Speak with a doctor for 15 minutes about your birth control history and needs.
- Pick up your prescription from your local pharmacy.
I joined PlushCare because I thought it was a fantastic idea. I’m excited to be able to help make healthcare a little more simple and a little more affordable.
We recently passed our 100,000th patient and our satisfaction rating is 95%.
I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
