Policies that ensure meaningful access to family planning services create health, social, and economic benefits for mothers, newborns, families, and communities. We must maintain and expand access to affordable contraception so that all New Mexicans can have adequate information and options that allow them to prevent, plan, and space their own pregnancies. We need to update our existing laws to ensure that the full range of contraceptive options are covered by insurance companies without out-of-pocket costs or medically unnecessary restrictions. This important bill would also improve access to contraception by covering access for both women and men and requiring insurance companies to cover up to a six-month supply of contraception at once.
