Navigating your birth control prescription during coronavirus | Simple Health

Things are anything but normal right now, but we are working hard to make sure that the last thing you have to worry about is your birth control prescription.

As it stands, we are operating business as usual. As recommended by the city, our New York City headquarters has gone fully remote, but our hours and support have not changed and there have been no disruptions to shipping operations at this time. In the event that external events require us to make changes, we’ll update our patients as soon as possible. 

Our pharmacy partner that fills and ships your prescriptions already maintains the highest level of cleanliness and sanitation, and in response to COVID-19, has implemented increased precautions to put the health and safety of patients first during this time. Here are some of the immediate steps they are taking to protect patients:

  • Pharmacy employees will self-screen for symptoms and do temperature checks
  • If any employee is not feeling well or has members of their immediate household who are ill, they will not enter the pharmacy
  • Team members will wear new and clean gloves while handling all medications and put on new gloves throughout the day
  • They have increased the frequency of daily sanitation procedures, including cleaning all pharmacy surfaces throughout the day

Overall, the Centers for Disease Control recommends that healthcare providers utilize telemedicine tools when possible to limit patient exposure to COVID-19. While our online prescription home delivery model already allows you to avoid the doctor’s office and pharmacy, we highly encourage you to explore this option with any other healthcare providers you may need at this time. 

If you need to make changes to your delivery timing or quantity, don’t forget that you can do so in your account.
