The House Health and Human Services Omnibus Finance bill, HF 2414, includes policy on many different issues. In its current form, it includes the Protect Access to Contraception Act (PAC Act) and an increase in funding to the Family Planning Special Projects Grant. Both of these provisions will improve access to critical preventive health care and help all Minnesotans lead full lives and plan their futures.

The 2019 Protect Access to Contraception bill: 1) requires that state-regulated health plans cover all FDA-approved contraceptives, counseling and follow-up services at no out-of-pocket cost; and 2) allows patients to receive up to 12 months of birth control at one time, covered by insurance.

Birth control is basic health care for millions of people and is essential to economic advancement.  The PAC Act makes it easier for Minnesotans to access the birth control method that is right for them, regardless of cost, free of insurance barriers and without political interference.

Increased funding for the Family Planning Special Projects (FPSP) grant will help clinics withstand the federal family planning cuts. There is significant unmet need for reproductive health care services across Minnesota. The increased funding would allow clinics to serve more patients, address the STD crisis, ensure access to birth control, and improve the overall health of Minnesotans.

Governor Tim Walz and Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan have already included provisions for increased FPSP funding in their state budget. HF 2414 as it is currently written will allow the Minnesota House to follow their leadership and prioritize the needs of Minnesota women and families. These provisions will help protect and expand access to reproductive health care in Minnesota.

Now is the time to tell members of the Minnesota House Health and Human Services Finance Committee to keep these important provisions in the HHS Omnibus Finance bill. Send a message to committee members today to let them know you support these critical pieces of legislation.
