  • i take orthro novum....i think thats the genetic brand name..ik have insurance and it is free i dont think birthcontrol pills are very costly unless you get something that isnt going to make u have a period or pms symptoms every month lol..u can also try calling ur pharmacist and asking them they would probably know better..and then u can use that iinformation and tell ur doctor that that is the kind that you want to go on so you can afford it and u shouldnt have ne probs getting a perscription

  • If your doctor prescribes them for health reasons, why is your insurance not paying for them? I had been on one that was not one of the "preferred ones" on our plan, doctor wrote a note saying I needed for documented pain control (of the cramping) and they allowed me to get them, they were still $20 a month though.
    Have you tried to get pills through Family Planning/Planned Parenthood? They charge you based on your income. Yeah, you'd have to have your exam there, but if I could get my BC Pills cheaper I certainly wood! I currently pay only $10 under my insurance for Reclipsen, retail price is $26.99
