Obama Administration Ensures Near-Universal Access to Contraceptive Coverage

HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced today that most employers will be required to cover contraception in their health plans with no co-pays or deductibles.

Today brings great news for health care access and women's health. From ThinkProgress: "Today, in a huge victory for women's health, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced that most employers will be required to cover contraception in their health plans, along with other preventive services, with no cost-sharing such as co-pays or deductibles. This means that after years of trying to get birth control covered to the same extent that health plans cover Viagra, our country will finally have nearly universal coverage of contraception."
