A San Francisco online startup that home delivers birth control and HIV prevention prescriptions has launched service in Wisconsin.
Nurx Inc., founded by Hans Gangeskar and Dr. Edvard Engesaeth in 2015, is supported by former First Daughter and health advocate Chelsea Clinton, who recently became the company’s newest board member.
Women use the app to select a type of birth control and answer some health questions, then a doctor in the patient’s state reviews the order and writes a prescription. The medication is then shipped to the patient’s home.
Patients also can have a doctor decide which birth control pill is right for them based on their health profile. Nurx accepts insurance and offers on its website to help women without insurance find an affordable option. Prices start at around $15 for a month’s supply. Read the full story here.
