The California Women’s Law Center (CWLC) supports California State Senate Bill 1053 authored by Senator Holly Mitchell.
SB 1053 will ensure access to the full range of contraceptive methods approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for all insured individuals in California without cost sharing, delays or denial of coverage.
CWLC support SB 1053 because it will build upon current state and federal law to require insurance coverage of all FDA approved methods, voluntary sterilization, and comprehensive contraceptive counseling without restrictions or cost-sharing. It also creates equity in the contraceptive coverage mandate by eliminating co-pays for birth control for men.
SB 1053 WAS SIGNED BY THE GOVERNOR ON 9/26/14.
