President Trump's Contraception Rule Ignores the Reality
That Birth Control is Health Care

The birth control pill had a revolutionary impact on our nation when the
FDA approved it for use more than 50 years ago. It gave women the
opportunity to plan their family in a medically-safe way, which studies
have linked to lower infant mortality and abortion rates. It also provided
treatment for conditions like endometriosis and polycystic ovary syndrome.
Despite this clear and essential medical need, birth control pills were
rarely treated like an important medication. Insurers often treated it
like a luxury instead of basic health care, failing to cover it in
insurance plans and leaving women to pay exorbitant out-of-pocket costs
that sometimes totaled as much as 44 percent of their health care
expenses.

.

This all changed when President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act (ACA)
into law. More than ten years after Viagra was first covered by insurance,
insurers were finally required to cover birth control at no cost. This
policy recommendation was made after an Institute of Medicine committee of
16 leading womens health care experts embarked on a rigorous eight month
process. I brought the ACA to the floor of the House as chairwoman of the
House Committee on Rules, and it remains one of my proudest moments. The
results have been striking.


.


As a result, 62 million women now access contraception at no cost to them,
which has helped drive down total prescription drug costs for all
Americans by 63 percent nationwide. One study estimated that women saved
more than $1.4 billion on birth control pills alone in just a single year.
This is money that women are now free to spend on food, education, other
medical or household expenses, or to improve the quality of life for her
family and children.

.

The impacts go beyond just savings. With women free to plan for their
future, the rate of unintended pregnancy is at a 30-year low, teen
pregnancy is at an all-time low, and women are better able to avoid
high-risk medical conditions like pre-eclampsia. In fact, the Guttmacher
Institute found in January that the rate of abortions in the United States
has fallen to its lowest level since the Supreme Court issued its landmark
Roe v. Wade decision protecting a womans Constitutional right to choose in
1973.

.

Unfortunately, the Trump administration moved late last week to roll back
this progress. This move would let anyone, from bosses to insurance
executives, decide who gets access to contraception coverage. Its not just
employees that will be impacted, students attending a private college or
university could also see the health care coverage they rely on ripped
away.

.

Women wont just have to pay slightly higher costs under this rule, they
will have to pay for the full cost of their birth control if it is no
longer covered. Thats no small thing. Birth control pills can cost more
than $600 a year without insurance coverage, with some brand name and low
estrogen pills costing much more. Longer-term methods like IUDs could cost
up to $1,000 without insurance, with the up-front costs totaling the
average months salary for a woman earning minimum wage. Meaning that women
may make their health care decisions based on cost, not what is best for
them.
