Low-Cost & Free Birth Control Resources for Uninsured Patients
For women who are sexually active, birth control is an important part of preventing unwanted pregnancy, and there are many safe and highly-effective contraception options available. At Comprehensive Women’s Health Center, we are committed to improving access to these contraception methods so that women can have optimal control of their reproductive health, even if they are uninsured.
CWHC believes that cost should never keep a woman from having access to birth control. So, we have compiled the following list of resources to help women without healthcare insurance find low-cost or free birth control, as well as some basic women’s health services throughout Colorado.
