Thanks to the Contraceptive Coverage Act, if you have health insurance, you should be able to access all FDA-approved birth control without being charged a co-payment. This includes pills, patches, rings, the implant and IUDs.

California Family Health Council (CFHC) proudly sponsored the Contraceptive Coverage Equity Act in 2014 to ensure that all Californians with health insurance have access to their birth control method of choice without restrictions or having to pay out of pocket costs. CFHC is tracking implementation of the new law that took effect January 1, 2016.
