What a great news I would like to share with you today. Welcome to the 21st century. I am happy for all women in Cali, Washington and Oregon. You can obtain a Brith Control pills, over-the-counter nicotine patches, and certain prophylactic medications for travel abroad as well as order tests that evaluate efficacy and toxicity of certain medications. You don’t need a prescription anymore, all you need to fill out a 20-question health-screening questionnaire to evaluate you health conditions and have your blood pressure taken. If you are in Oregon you should be at least 18 years old.

It’s not exactly over the counter , because the pharmacist is still prescribing the contraception. But it’s a step toward improving birth control access -an important part of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which requires insurers  to offer at least one of every form of contraception at no cost to patients.

  2. That’s awesome! I discussed this in a blog post couple months ago when the bill was still in its early stage. It’s really exciting to hear that it is actually happening. This will grant patients greater access to women’s health, and is a huge progress in the making for the pharmacy profession.
