Discounted birth control?

“I went to the doctor for my annual exam and to get a new prescription for birth control pills because mine was up, but I don’t have insurance and because the exam was so much I can’t afford the prescription. Is there somewhere I can fill the prescription for free or at a discount? And if there is would I have to have another exam done there or can I just give them the prescription that my doctor wrote me?”

A “Unfortunately I do not know of anywhere that fills prescriptions for free or a discounted rate. If you do not have health insurance and are on a limited income you could come to our clinic. We work on a sliding fee scale meaning we bill patients on their family size and income. If you choose to come to our clinic you will need to have an exam before you can start on birth control pills.
