How much does the pill cost?

That depends on whether you have insurance and, if so, what kind, but the average is around $25 per month. You might be able to pay less if you use a generic rather than brand-name pill or if you can find an online pharmacy that offers cheaper prices. Be sure to ask your provider about those options.

If you’re on Medicaid you can probably get on the pill for free and private insurance probably covers everything except for your copay.

Also, check with the family planning clinics around you and find out if they offer free or low cost birth control pills. Most do.
