Representative Jodeh and Representative Weinberg, co-prime bill sponsors, presented Senate Bill 23-284, concerning requirements for contraception insurance coverage that increases consistent access to the contraception most suited to the individual. Under current law, state-regulated insurance plans must cover a 3-month supply of contraceptives the first time the prescription is filled and a 12-month supply for refills. The bill requires state-regulated insurance plans to cover a 12-month supply of all FDA-approved contraceptives, or their therapeutic equivalent, when permitted by the prescription and supply, without imposing prior authorization requirements. The bill specifies that dispensing fees must be paid per unit. Additionally, the plan must include point-of-sale coverage for over-the-counter contraceptives without requiring a prescription, prior authorization, or step therapy. The Commissioner of Insurance must establish corresponding reporting requirements.
