The ring is too expensive. Any suggestions about how to get it for less?
It's too expensive.
Since we don’t exactly know what you’re paying now, we’ll cover a few scenarios to see if we can help you out:
If you’re on Medicaid, the ring might be free for you. If you have private insurance, it’s probably covered for no more than your copay.
If those aren’t options for you, check with the family planning clinics around you and find out if they offer free or low-cost birth control. Most do.
Another solution might be to ask your partner to help pay for the expense.
Still not working?
If you find it’s still just too expensive, you have other options. Some varieties of the pill (generics, in particular) may be cheaper than the ring (no generic ring yet!), but don’t forget that you need to take the pill every single day.
