Lessons from CA: Contraceptive Coverage

Executive Summary

In this month’s Lessons from California, we highlight landmark legislation, the Contraceptive Coverage Equity Act (SB 1053, Mitchell), the state just enacted that requires that Medi-Cal managed care organizations (MCO) and most private insurers cover all FDA-approved methods and strictly limits MCO medical management techniques. These important new state law protections will ensure that each woman in California can make her own contraceptive decisions and serve as a model for states throughout the country.
