Telehealth and Income: Survey Says
Telehealth can help overcome some of the common barriers associated with not being able to access contraception, such as transportation, cost of childcare, and taking time off from work. However, lack of access to reliable internet and other resources prevent some women from using telehealth.
72% of respondents with higher incomes reported they were likely to talk to their health care provider about telehealth options in comparison to 18% of women with lower incomes. These results reflect a need to increase education so that all women regardless of economic status can access contraception through telehealth.
