Access to contraception is critical to an individual’s autonomy, equality, and ability to participate in the social, economic, and political life of the nation. This bill expands access to birth control to patients that are at least 18 years of age. It allows pharmacists to prescribe and dispense birth control such as patches and oral contraceptive pills. It also requires health plans to cover birth control.

*Note: SB 153 and HB 1224 were copycat versions of HB 1568 that both failed.
