Birth Control Law / Recent change to legislation / Utah Hormonal Contraceptive Law
The role of pharmacists in Utah continues to expand. Utah passed the Utah Hormonal Contraceptive Law, Family Planning Access Act Utah Code 26-64-104 which authorizes pharmacists to write and dispense birth control prescriptions to female patients 18 years and older.
Beyond the extensive training required to become a pharmacist, each of Kamas FoodTown Pharmacists has undergone additional training to provide these clinical services. Kamas FoodTown Pharmacists are required to complete nationally accredited Certification Programs and demonstrate knowledge of clinical practice recommendations prior to providing any of the Women’s Health Clinical Services.
We are excited to offer this convenient new service, however, patients are still encouraged to visit with their primary care provider on a regular basis for all recommended check-ups. Per Utah State Law, patients must attest they have met with a healthcare provider every 2 years to participate in a Pharmacy Hormonal Contraceptive program. Prescription hormonal contraception (birth control) does not alleviate the need for other health screenings that only your doctor can provide.
What to expect during your visit
We understand potential sensitivity around the birth control service and want to ensure every patient feels comfortable discussing their birth control options with our pharmacists. Most of our pharmacies offer private consultation rooms, allowing for confidential discussion. Patient privacy is of the upmost importance. Each pharmacy team member will take every precaution to ensure your privacy and make you comfortable during your visit.
Our pharmacies accept walk-ins and have extended business hours to help you get in and out quickly.

- Our trained pharmacist will provide a short consultation, including a blood pressure check, review your medical history and discuss your birth control options.
- You will be provided with a birth control option and use instructions.
