Has your insurance company told you they won’t pay for your birth control, or that your method requires a copay? Have you been told you have to take a different method than the one you were prescribed? Have you had trouble getting coverage for emergency contraception?
NARAL Pro-Choice Washington wants to hear your story. We’re making sure that insurers know we’re watching them–and that we won’t be satisfied until every insurance company in Washington State is meeting its obligations to provide no-cost birth control to all women, and to provide accurate information so women don’t make poor health and economic decisions based on bad information.
Earlier this month, our “secret shopper” survey of the eight insurance companies providing health care under the Affordable Care Act found that not one insurer consistently provided accurate information to women who called asking about birth control benefits.
This is unacceptable. Tell us your birth-control story by writing us at firstname.lastname@example.org and help us tell insurance companies that women won’t stand for misinformation and misdirection about our health care.
