Contraceptive access should be expanded to include those who currently lack coverage

April 2023


BCHC signed onto a letter sponsored by the National Women’s Law Center to urge the Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Labor, and Department of the Treasury to:

  • revise the Affordable Care Act (ACA) contraceptive coverage regulations;
  • support the rescission of the moral exemption and oppose any alternative to rescission;
  • oppose the sweeping religious exemption currently in place;
  • consider making the accommodation required again;
  • make the Individual Contraceptive Arrangement (ICA) work well in practice;
  • ensure consumer eligibility and range of providers are as broad as possible;
  • proactively and broadly publicize the ICA;
  • actively recruit and incentivize payers and providers;
  • support providers implementation of the ICA;
  • issue guidance and take immediate enforcement action to bring the insurance industry into compliance with the ACA contraceptive coverage requirement, and
  • vigilantly oversee and enforce every aspect of the contraceptive coverage requirement.
