Sununu Signs Bill For Year Supply of Birth Control Pills

A bipartisan bill to give women a full-year supply of birth control pills with a single prescription has been signed into law by New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu.

The bill lifts a three-month cap for contraceptive prescriptions, raising it to 12 months. The bill enables doctors to prescribe 12 months of the medication and insurance carriers would be mandated to cover it without imposing co-pays.

For those women that are and have been on birth control pills for any length of time – the signing of this bill is music to their ears.

Last month, Sununu signed a bill that would allow pharmacists to prescribe oral contraceptives without a doctor’s visit.
