House Bill 25 requires insurance coverage for all FDA-approved contraceptive methods. It also requires insurance plans to cover a one-year supply of birth control. Consistent use of birth control is the best way to prevent unintended pregnancy and we must remove unnecessary and burdensome obstacles that block reliable access to contraceptives. Women without reliable access to transportation or living in rural areas have more barriers to dependable access to birth control, leaving them at a greater risk for unintended pregnancies.

Why This Bill Is So Important
Being able to prevent unwanted pregnancy should be easy. Having limited access to transportation or even just a busy schedule makes it difficult to guarantee that you can get your next month's pack on time. It is a hassle to have to go to the pharmacy monthly. This logistical challenge can lead to missed pills and unwanted pregnancies. Being able to maintain a year's supply of birth control means taking away some of the stress and allows women to prevent or allow pregnancy on their own terms, at the right time.
