Vermont Access to Birth Control Law
Signed into law in May 2016, the Vermont Access to Birth Control law is one of the most comprehensive birth control access laws in the country.
What does the Vermont Access to Birth Control law do?
- Codifies the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) birth control benefit for Vermonters, ensuring no-cost birth control.
- Provides access to one year’s supply of prescription birth control.
- Recognizes pregnancy as a “qualifying event” on the health exchange.
- Improves access to long acting reversible contraception (LARC) by increasing Medicaid provider reimbursement.
How to Get a Free, One-Year Supply of Birth Control Under Vermont Law
The Vermont Access to Birth Control Law allows Vermonter’s to pick up a 12-month supply of prescription birth control in one visit and requires most health insurance plans to cover 12 months of pills, patches, or rings at no cost to patients. Download our 3-step patient guidance handout.
