Twentyeight Health

Best if you have Medicaid

Our favorite thing about Twentyeight Health is its mission to accessibility: the company accepts Medicaid in all of the states where it prescribes birth control and gives back some of its profits to the National Institute of Reproductive Health.

  • Transparency

    They're upfront and mission-driven in trying to provide the underinsured with accessible birth control

  • Accessibility

    It's affordable, but only currently available in six states.

  • Convenience

    It's super easy to navigate getting birth control through them and your packages will be very discreet.

  • Choice

    Twentyeight Health offers people all of the birth control options available to them online, including the pill, the patch, the ring and the shot.

There's a lot of things we like about Twentyeight Health. They give people all of the birth control options available to them online (the pill, the patch, the ring and the shot). Their packaging is so discreet that we were confused by the non-branded parcel when we ordered it during testing. And they're laser-focused on their mission to provide more accessible, affordable birth control to patients that are underinsured in the U.S.

Pros

  • Twentyeight Health asks what you prefer between three different types of birth control methods: the pill, the patch, the shot or the ring.

  • Packages delivered to your door will be very discreet (there's seriously no labeling on these packages)

  • The company screens for unsafe health conditions

  • The company offers more than 100 different types of birth control

  • With every order, the company donates 1% of their revenue to the National Institute of Reproductive Health to help other women get access to reproductive health services

  • The company accepts Medicaid in Florida, Maryland, New York, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, California, Oregon and Washington.

  • Twentyeight Health also prescribes emergency contraception (Plan B)

Cons

  • Twentyeight Health is only able to send birth control to nine states, whereas other companies are much more widely available.

Tips

  • If you are paying cash, you can choose to get 1, 3, 6 or 12 packs per delivery for birth control pills and 1 pack per delivery for the ring, the patch or the shot. If you are using insurance, they will send you the number of packs allowed by your insurance.

  • Twentyeight Health's initial consultation fee is $20, which will give you access to unlimited messaging with their health staff. However, know that there are other companies that offer this initial consultation at a cheaper price or for free.

  • Pills start at $18/pack without insurance. Know that there are cheaper options (like Pill Club) that offer the pill for as low as $9/pack without insurance.
