Obama Administration Clarifies Birth Control Mandate

All 18 forms of contraception must be covered free of charge.


“The FDA currently identifies 18 distinct methods of contraception for women, and the … guidelines are designed to provide women’s access to the full range of these contraceptive methods identified by the FDA, as prescribed by a health care provider,” stated a fact sheet on the guidance, which was issued jointly by the departments of Labor, Treasury, and Health and Human Services. “Thus, plans and issuers must cover without cost sharing at least one form of contraception within each method the FDA has identified.” …

Accordingly, a plan or issuer may not impose cost-sharing on the ring or the patch.”
