New Contraceptive Regulations Announced by Governor Cuomo

“Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced a series of actions to firmly secure access to reproductive rights in New York State. Through regulatory action, the State will ensure that contraceptive drugs and devices are covered by commercial health insurance policies without co-pays, coinsurance, or deductibles regardless of the future of the Affordable Care Act; contraceptives are available in amounts exceeding one month’s supply at a time; and all medically necessary abortion services are covered by commercial health insurance policies without co-pays, coinsurance, or deductibles.”

Links to the circular letter and regulations can be found below.  High Deductible Health Plan deductions will apply to abortion services.
