ForHers focuses on women’s health and wellness including birth control, skincare, libido, and hair loss. Users can virtually connect with a physician for a health assessment and get a prescription for birth control or other health products without even having insurance. The prescription will then be delivered straight to your door, so you don’t even need to leave the house.
In terms of birth control, users need to answer some health and lifestyle questions, medical history, symptoms, and have a government issued ID and credit card to connect with the doctor. All of the information is stored on an encrypted platform for user security. Users are then connected to a physician licensed in their state to talk about diagnosis and treatment and answer any questions. Finally, the agreed upon prescriptions are delivered (with free delivery) to the user’s door.
ForHers is built to make getting birth control as convenient as possible. Instead of taking time off to go to the doctor’s office or pharmacy or seeing what works with your insurance company, you can do everything online. If you have any questions, you can consult with a physician online instead of waiting until an appointment comes up. The birth control is then delivered straight to you so you don’t have to worry about picking it up.
ForHers doesn’t take insurance, meaning that anyone can use the service even if they don’t have health insurance. Of course, this does mean that insurance won’t cover the services, so if you do have insurance that covers birth control you might be spending more than you have to. It also means that ForHers only offers generic pill birth control, so if you’re looking for other options you may have to search elsewhere.
