Due to the passage of a new health care reform law, a recommendation has been set in place for health insurers to cover eight different preventive services for women, including birth control.
"The new health care reform law represents the biggest opportunity to advance women's health in decades," said Jill June, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of the Heartland.
The reform recommendation will allow women to be covered for all forms of birth control, thus allowing women to use different services without having to endure the hassle of co-paying for them. Services available under the new law include contraceptives, counseling, annual exams, HIV testing and screening and counseling for domestic violence.
June believes that having no co-pay will "eliminate barriers that prevent women form receiving preventive services."
