Support the Birth Control Matters Campaign For Contraception With No Co-Pays
Birth Control Matters is an effort to make birth control available with no copays so that all women can use the method that works best for them and to reduce the number of unintended pregnancies.
Affordable prescription birth control is an essential part of health care for millions of women. The average woman spends 30 years of her life trying to avoid getting pregnant. More than one-third of women voters in America have struggled with the cost of prescription birth control at some point in their lives, and, as a result, have used birth control inconsistently.
No copays for birth control is the single most important step we can take to reduce the number of unintended pregnancies.
The new health care reform law represents the single biggest opportunity to advance women’s health in 45 years.
To make this opportunity a reality, the law must require health plans to provide prescription birth control to women with no copays, as part of the prevention provision.
This would be a huge step forward for America – and especially for the many of women in this nation who cannot afford to pay for prescription contraception.
