Frequently asked questions

Birth Control

How do birth control pills work?

Birth control pills work by preventing ovulation, thickening cervical mucus to stop sperm from penetrating the uterus, and changing the thickness of the lining of the uterus so that a fertilized egg cannot implant. Talk to your healthcare practitioner to find out more about the differences between each type of birth control pill and to find the best birth control for you.

How effective are birth control pills?

If used exactly as instructed, birth control pills are approximately 99.7% effective. However, due to timing errors, forgotten pills, result in birth control pills being closer to 91% effective. Needless to say, the better you are at taking your birth control prescription medication as prescribed, the more likely it to be more effective.

Which birth control option is right for me?

It depends on many factors but we'll help you find the one that works best for your lifestyle. During your online visit you’ll answer questions about your medical history, previous birth control medications, and goals to help the practitioner determine the best birth control plan for you.

You will also have direct access to your Felix practitioner after you've completed the visit and during your treatment plan.

Do you offer alternative forms of birth control?

Currently, Felix offers pills, patches, and rings as birth control options.

How do I take birth control pills?

It's always best to follow your healthcare practitioner's advice on how to take birth control pills. It's important to take your birth control pill at the same time every day, but don't panic if you miss a pill. The schedule for different types of birth control pills can vary (some come in 21, 24, or 28-day packs), so talk to your healthcare practitioner if you have specific questions.

Can I get a refill of my existing birth control prescription?

Yes. Generally, your Felix prescription will contain refills for the prescribed medication.

If you already have a prescription with at least one refill remaining, you can transfer it to the Felix Pharmacy network. Please email our Customer Support team at hello@felixforyou.ca and they will be able to assist you with the transfer.

How much does the prescription birth control cost?

Birth control medication filled with our Felix pharmacy partners is comparable to what you'd pay at your local pharmacy. Starting at $8.74 per package (not including the pharmacy fill fee), the price will vary based on the drug chosen, the province it is shipped to, and the refill schedule chosen.

If your healthcare practitioner believes birth control is right for you, they can provide you with a prescription and discretely deliver your medication right to your door, at no additional cost.

Is birth control covered by OHIP in Ontario?

OHIP+ covers some birth control for eligible residents of Ontario who are under 25 years old and do not have private insurance. You can check if your birth control medication is covered here. Make sure to upload your Ontario health card during your online visit so our pharmacy partners can apply your coverage directly.

How to get a birth control prescription?

You can get a birth control prescription through a licensed Canadian healthcare practitioner. If you have a family doctor, they will be able to prescribe you birth control. A walk-in clinic can also provide birth control prescriptions. You may be asked when your last Pap smear was, and if you’re overdue for one the doctors may only give you a prescription for a few months, encouraging you to get your regular Pap smear and then come back for a longer prescription.

The easiest way to get a birth control prescription is through an online healthcare provider like Felix. Your prescription will still be written by a licensed healthcare professional, as is legally required in Canada, but you don’t have to visit them in person to get it. Instead, you can complete an online consultation, provide the necessary information about your medical history and anything else that may be relevant, and get your prescription without having to leave your home.

You can then order your birth control directly to your doorstep through Felix, so you can skip the pharmacy trip, too. With recurring deliveries, you don’t have to worry about realizing you’re at the end of your pack of pills without a refill ready to go.

Can I get birth control online?

Yes, with Felix you can get birth control online. You’ll have to first speak with a licensed healthcare practitioner, like the ones at Felix. Simply, complete a short online visit and select from the treatment options available.

If the practitioner believes that birth control could be a good treatment option for you, based on your health and medical history, they’ll be able to provide you with a prescription. Best of all, our pharmacy partners can deliver your medication directly to your door, for free!

How to get birth control in Canada?

To get birth control in Canada, you have to get a prescription from a licensed healthcare practitioner. Of course, there are also non-prescription forms of birth control that you can buy over the counter at drug stores and other retailers. However, if you want to take oral contraceptives, these need to be prescribed by a healthcare practitioner. Once you have your prescription, you can get it filled at any pharmacy. Typically, you may be able to buy up to three months at a time. Once you’re out, you return to the pharmacy to get a refill. If there are no more refills left on your prescription, you’ve got to get a new one from a healthcare practitioner.

The easier way to do this is to use an online healthcare service like Felix. You can get your prescription online and order your birth control to be shipped right to your home regularly. This saves you having to think about when it’s time to refill your prescription, and you’ll never find yourself out of pills and rushing out to get more. You can also skip the doctor’s visit to renew your prescription since this can all be done easily online.

How to get birth control pills without a doctor?

You can get birth control pills without visiting a doctor by using an online healthcare service like Felix. Your online visit with Felix will still be reviewed by a healthcare practitioner, who will then prescribe oral contraceptives if appropriate for you, but you don’t have to go to a doctor’s office at any point in the process.

In Canada, only licensed healthcare practitioners can write prescriptions, and these have to be filled by registered pharmacists. Felix takes care of all of this without you having to go to a doctor’s office or pharmacy. Instead, once your prescription has been written, our pharmacy partners can deliver your medication directly to your home without the hassle of going to a pharmacy to get your prescription filled.

Plus, you can have your medication delivered to you regularly, so you’ll never find yourself rushing to the pharmacy because you realized you’re out of birth control pills. Even if you don’t have a family doctor, you can quickly and easily get your birth control prescription and have your first order of birth control pills on its way to you in no time.

Online Visits

How does this visit work?

After creating an account, you will complete a medical assessment for evaluation by one of the Felix healthcare practitioners. 

During your assessment, you will have the opportunity to send your practitioner questions via secure messaging.  

In most cases, practitioners will complete your assessment with secure messaging alone but sometimes they may determine you require an audio or video visit and/or further diagnostic testing to help determine the best treatment plan for you. 

If your practitioner has determined a prescription treatment is appropriate, they will approve your visit and write you a prescription. Our pharmacy will then ship your prescription to your home.

You’ll be able to message your healthcare practitioner if you have questions about your medication or want to make changes to your treatment at any time.

Do I need to complete my online visit at a scheduled time?

No. We use an asynchronous telemedicine model so you can complete your online visit in your own time and we save your progress so you can come back later to finish it.

If you are completing a visit in the mental health or weight loss categories, your healthcare practitioner may require a phone or video call to discuss your medical profile further during the assessment process.

Does the online visit require a phone or video appointment?

Most assessments do not require a phone or video conversation. Once a prescriber has reviewed the info in your assessment they will respond to you via secure instant messages that you can access within your Felix account.  

If you are completing a visit in the mental health or weight loss categories, your healthcare practitioner may require a phone or video call to discuss your medical profile further during the assessment process.

How quickly will a healthcare practitioner review my online visit?

You can expect to receive a response from a healthcare practitioner within 24 hours of submission. If you’ve been waiting longer than this, please email hello@felixforyou.ca and we’ll look into it.

Can I just get the medication and skip the online visit?

No. A prescription written by a licensed healthcare practitioner is required for all medication currently provided through Felix’s service. If you already have a prescription with at least one refill remaining, you can transfer it to the Felix Pharmacy network.

Please email our Customer Support team at hello@felixforyou.ca and they will be able to assist you with the transfer.

Shipping

How long will it take to get my medication?

Not long. After completing your assessment, a practitioner will generally respond within 24 hours, and often much sooner.

The pharmacy will process and fill your prescription within 2-3 business days of your prescription approval date if there is nothing blocking them from doing so.

All packages are shipped via Express Post, which usually takes 2-3 business days. You will receive an email with your tracking number once your treatment has been shipped.

Is your packaging discreet?

Absolutely. All Felix shipments arrive in a nondescript blister package so you can have your medication shipped wherever makes sense for you as long as there is someone there to sign for it.

Do I have to be home to receive my package?

A signature upon delivery may be required.

How much does it cost for shipping my medication?

There is currently no cost to have your medication sent to you from our Felix Pharmacy network.

What courier do you use for shipping?

Our pharmacy partners use Canada Post and/or Purolator for shipping.

Insurance

Am I covered by my insurance?

Treatment coverage varies greatly between different insurance plans.

The good news is that if you are covered, Felix can bill your insurer directly, and then process your treatment plan at no additional cost to you. We recommend that you upload your private and/or provincial benefit card during the online visit so that our pharmacy partner can apply any coverage you are eligible for before processing your treatment plan.

Insurance coverage for treatment plans through Felix doesn't include the cost of your visit.

Is the online visit covered by my insurance or provincial health plans?

A Felix online visit is considered asynchronous since it is conveniently completed through a secure chat bases system. Currently, asynchronous visits are not covered by insurance or provincial health plans so you will be charged a visit fee, depending on the category of treatment you are requesting.

Is the medication covered by my insurance or provincial health plans?

Medication coverage varies greatly between different plans, provinces, and has specific criteria that determine eligibility. For private insurance, we recommend contacting your benefits administrator with your details and the Drug Identification Number (DIN) and the drug name to determine your coverage.

Is birth control covered by OHIP in Ontario?

OHIP+ covers some birth control for eligible residents of Ontario who are under 25 years old and do not have private insurance. You can check if your birth control medication is covered here. Make sure to upload your Ontario health card during your online visit so our pharmacy partners can apply your coverage directly.

Felix 101

What is Felix?

Felix is Canada’s first truly integrated healthcare platform. We provide on-demand treatment for everyday health needs like weight loss, mental health, sexual health, and more. Founded in 2019, our digital-first approach to healthcare includes everything from diagnosis to prescription — all accessible from the comfort of home.

Who can use Felix?

Anyone who is 18 years or older older (16 or older for acne and birth control prescriptions), and is located in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Saskatchewan or Ontario. We cannot ship treaments outside of these provinces at this time.

Does Felix replace my doctor?

No. Felix provides a faster, hassle-free way for you to get a prescription to certain medications but our service does not replace your primary care provider. For matters that extend beyond obtaining a prescription lifestyle medication safely and easily, we encourage you to consult your primary health practitioner in person — whether for checkups, personal health concerns, or to inform them about the medications you are currently using.

Can I be accurately assessed remotely?

Absolutely. Our online assessments have been designed to ask all the necessary questions required for diagnosis. We've worked with specialist to create an assessment process that can provide sufficient information for the healthcare practitioner to determine whether or not you are eligible for a prescription and craft an appropriate treatment plan.

It's an emergency. What do I do?

Call 911 or proceed to your nearest emergency room immediately. Felix is not intended for medical emergencies. Once the emergency has been addressed or resolved, contact your prescribing practitioner to inform them of your experience as this may impact your current treatment plan.

Prescriptions

How long does a prescription last?

Prescriptions written by Felix healthcare practitioners will last up to 12 months from the date of issue. Generally, your Felix prescription will contain refills for the prescribed medication. However, the amount of medication and the number of refills prescribed will ultimately be decided by the practitioner who reviews your online visit.

How do I change my medication after it has been prescribed?

Changing medication does legally require a new prescription as the healthcare practitioner will need to both cancel the existing prescription as well as review a health assessment of yours in the context of this different drug.
Go to Treatments, click "View details" on your prescription, and use the "Change my treatment plan" feature to submit a free follow-up visit and request a medication change with your healthcare practitioner.

I already have a prescription, can I transfer it to Felix?

At this time we are not accepting external patient transfers into the Felix Pharmacy network due to capacity restrictions. We hope to have the capacity to accept your transfer soon.

How do I apply for multiple treatments?

Once you’ve created your Felix account and set up your medical profile, you can complete an online visit to any of the treatment categories you are eligible for using that same account.

What is the pharmacy fill fee?

Every pharmacy charges a dispensing fee for filling prescriptions. Think of it as a service fee for knowledge and service provided by the pharmacist. If you get your medication through Felix, our pharmacy is still required to charge a fill fee and that fee is included in the price of medication that we display. A $12.00 fill fee is charged for each drug, every time you get a refill.
