Same Day Contraception

Providing a contraceptive method on the same day a patient is counseled and decides which method they would like is considered to be a patient-centered best practice. Many patients are able to receive prescription methods in this fashion. The provision of long-acting reversible contraception, and sometimes injectable contraception, during a non-contraception visit (such as an annual exam) can be logistically challenging. Patients are often advised to schedule a return visit for long-acting methods, yet many of them are not able to return for a second visit. Here you will find resources for providers and administrative staff on the same day provision of all methods of contraception.

To successfully implement same day contraception at your practice, we encourage you to check out our PICCK materials, including:

  • Same Day LARC Toolkit
  • Checklist for Champions: Same Day Contraception
  • LARC Billing Guideline
