Alpha is a service that gives women access to health and wellness services online including hormonal birth control, acne and anti-aging skin treatment, and eyelash growth serum. Users can gain access to doctors and nurse practitioners for prescriptions and can get birth control and other products delivered with free shipping, either covered by insurance or outside of insurance coverage.
On the Alpha website, users can sign up online and answer some medical history questions. Then, a doctor reviews the answers and can prescribe the treatment to be delivered to the user with free shipping. The prescription then refills automatically until the user cancels whenever. The service can cost as little as $0 for patients who are insured and $20/month for uninsured patients, with a one time $10 fee for the initial online medical visit.
Alpha offers several different types of hormonal birth control for its users. These include many popular brands of pills, patches, and rings. If you’re not sure about what type would be best for you, you can consult with one of the Alpha physicians.
Learning about birth control through Alpha is not limited to consultations with the doctors. On the Alpha website, users can read through a birth control guide that explains the different types of birth control offered and answers common questions. Alpha also has a blog that features information about popular birth control and skincare topics.
