DENVER, CO - The following statement was released today, March 12, 2018, and is attributed to Sara Taylor-Nanista, Vice President of Public Affairs of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (PPRM) and Executive Director of Planned Parenthood Votes Colorado (PPVC).

“Life just got a little easier for some Colorado women, thanks to lawmakers who funded extending coverage for a 12-month supply of birth control under Medicaid.

“This amendment in the Colorado state budget brings Medicaid up to par with what private insurance plans offer. For low-income individuals who often work less predictable hours, or for individuals who live in rural communities, finding the time and transportation for frequent trips to the pharmacy can be difficult, creating barriers in access to birth control. We know that the best birth control method for an individual is one they are able to use consistently and with which they are comfortable. By allowing individuals on Medicaid to access a 12-month supply, we greatly increase the chances they will use their method consistently, reducing those barriers and making life easier in the process.

“This step is not just an investment in our communities, but in the individuals within those communities. It is a moment of pride for Colorado.”


Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, which includes Colorado, Southern Nevada, New Mexico, and Wyoming, has been helping individuals make responsible choices for over 100 years.

Since 1916, we have been committed to delivering the highest quality reproductive health care, teaching responsible and age-appropriate sexuality education, and have been working diligently to protect a woman's right to choose. Each year nearly 100,000 women, men and teens visit our 24 health centers throughout our region.
