H.3279, the 12-Month Supply of Contraception bill, was heard by the House Labor, Commerce, and Insurance Subcommittee in 2019. Member committed to address the bill in early 2002. We need you to ask legislators to prioritize this bill.
This bill would require insurance providers to cover a one-year’s supply of birth control at a time.
In a state where the rate of unintended pregnancy hovers around 50 percent, dispensing a one-year’s supply of birth control at a time removes a significant barrier to dependable birth control access and family planning ability.
Join us in telling members of the House Insurance subcommittee to support long-term, uninterrupted access to contraception.
Access to a greater supply of birth control at one time has been associated with cost savings, healthier pregnancies; and increases the opportunities that women have to pursue education, advance their careers, and participate in public life.
Let's stand together today and support a healthier, economically stable South Carolina.
