Is my Birth Control at Risk?

Insurance can be tricky. Here’s how to figure out if you have access to birth control — or how you can get it.

I have private insurance, and I’m not sure if my plan covers birth control

Call your health insurance company! You can find their phone number on your insurance card. If you receive health coverage through your job, talk to someone in the Human Resources department.

I get my insurance through a religious organization that won’t cover birth control

Despite this, you are still able to access birth control under the Affordable Care Act.

I don’t have health insurance, and I need birth control

Planned Parenthood also has resources for those who want to sign up for health insurance, but aren’t sure they can afford it.

I still have questions about birth control coverage and insurance

Planned Parenthood is happy to answer any questions you may have about insurance and birth control.

At age 17, Courtney was diagnosed with endometriosis:

“While I could live with the physical pain, the idea that I may be unable to conceive was horrifying. Many years later, newly in graduate school and uninsured, I found myself unable to pay for the birth control that kept my pain at bay and preserved my fertility."

Fight for Birth Control

Birth control IS health care — no matter what the Trump administration thinks or whether your boss agrees with it.

It’s unbelievable we’re still fighting this in 2019.

As lieutenant governor, I defunded Planned Parenthood.

Jane Norton has spent decades attacking women's health

Jane Norton, Colorado’s former lieutenant governor and former director of public health, has devoted herself to the cause of “defunding” Planned Parenthood and attacking women’s health for decades.

In the late 1990s, she tried (and failed) to block health care providers that also provide abortion from the state’s public health programs. Even after she left public office in Colorado, she continued her crusade; in 2013, she filed suit as a private citizen in an attempt to force the state to block low-income Coloradans from accessing care at Planned Parenthood.
