Eligible people, who are registered patients at Desert Star Family Planning Clinic, and do not have public or private assistance for medications, may apply for the IUD Access Program. The IUD is a non daily form of birth control composed of a small T-shaped device that is inserted into your uterus by a skilled provider. It releases a steady daily dose of the contraceptive hormone into the uterus causing changes that prevent pregnancy. When inserted, it can provide safe, longer-term birth control compared to other methods.
To be eligible for the program you must 1) Live in the United States, 2) Have no public or private assistance for medications, 3) Register as a patient at Desert Star Family Planning Clinic, and 4) Meet financial eligibility criteria.
Submit a screening application (provided at the bottom of this page) to determine your eligibility for the program. If your eligibility is confirmed, you receive a donated Liletta IUD. The clinic waives the office visit copay and collects a $150 IUD insertion fee the day of insertion.
We are proud partners with Medicines360 and Direct Relief to provide the Liletta intrauterine device for people who want a long acting, non daily contraceptive method.
The Liletta intrauterine device was created by Medicines360, a global, mission-driven, non-profit pharmaceutical company forging new ways to expand access to medicines for women.
