as of February 2006, [only] 23 states require insurers that cover prescription drugs in general to provide coverage of the full range of FDA-approved contraceptive drugs and devices.
Baton Rouge, LA (PRWEB) June 26, 2006
Many American women are still faced with paying for the cost of prescription birth control out of their own pockets, because their insurance companies don’t cover the drugs. The new free prescription drug card available through http://www.YourRxCard.com helps these women by offering a discount on prescription birth control in the same method as their discounts on any other prescription drugs. The free card can also be used with insurance plans to help the patient receive the lowest prescription drug cost possible.
Cover My Pills, sponsored by Planned Parenthood’s Fair Access to Contraception (FAC) project, states that nearly 70% of American women in their childbearing years (“age 15-44 on average”), are sexually active and do not wish to become pregnant at the current time. The organization also shares that 95% of women in the US use some kind of contraception during their lifetime, and more than half of those women use prescription birth control.
Yet, even with the high demand by American women for prescription birth control, Cover My Pills reports that “as of February 2006, [only] 23 states require insurers that cover prescription drugs in general to provide coverage of the full range of FDA-approved contraceptive drugs and devices.” While the number of insurance companies covering prescription birth control drugs has improved in recent years, this demonstrates the fact that coverage is still a problem for women in many areas. The free prescription drug card from http://www.YourRxCard.com aims to serve as a simple solution to this complex and debated problem.
