PHARMACIES PRESCRIBING BIRTH CONTROL IN OREGON

A map of the state of Oregon showing the number of pharmacies per zip code that prescribe birth control.

Oregon is one of 18 states to allow pharmacists to prescribe self-administered hormonal birth control (e.g., pills, patch, ring, shot). Approximately 46% of pharmacies in Oregon participate in this program, spread across an estimated 63% of zip codes in the state. Additionally, 10% of new prescriptions for pills and patches for Medicaid enrollees in Oregon were written by a pharmacist. This confirms that pharmacists are vital to filling the gap in contraceptive coverage.
