Teens who want to take the Plan B pill, do they need to pay? or what if they cant afford it? If your under 18 do you need someone over 18 to come i with you?
Anyone 17 or older can buy Plan B One Step or Next Choice — the morning-after pill — over the counter at a drug store, Planned Parenthood health center, or another health clinic. If you’re under the age of 17, you can only get the morning-after pill with a prescription from a health care provider, or you can ask a friend or family member 17 or older to buy it for you. Since over-the-counter morning-after pills are more effective the sooner they’re taken, and getting a prescription can be a time consuming process, you might want to have the morning after pill on hand in case of an emergency.
The morning-after pill can cost anywhere from $10 to $70. Health and family planning centers generally charge less than private health care providers and drugstores. Planned Parenthood works to make health care accessible and affordable. Some health centers are able to charge according to income. Contact your local Planned Parenthood health center to get specific information on costs.
