New Virginia Law Requires Insurers to Cover 12-Month Supply of B

New Virginia Law Requires Insurers to Cover 12-Month Supply of B

As of January 1, insurance companies must now cover a 12-month supply of birth control at one time.

With the uncertainty surrounding future health care coverage under the Trump administration, many women say they are concerned with future coverage and cost of the drugs.

Bill sponsors and physicians say having a yearly supply of contraceptives will help reduce unwanted pregnancies by shrinking the possibility that there's a gap in administration.

People opposed to the bill, mainly insurance companies, say the 12-month supply could go to waste.

Right now, just five other states and Washington, D.C. require insurance companies to give the years’ worth supply.
