Pass the Contraceptive ACCESS Bill Now

Dear [Decision Maker],

I am writing to you today in support of S. 499/H. 536, An Act Relative to Advancing Contraception Coverage and Economic Security in our State, or the Contraceptive ACCESS bill, legislation that protects and improves no copay birth control coverage for Massachusetts women.

On Friday, October 6th, The Trump administration announced a rule that would completely dismantle the Affordable Care Act's requirement that all insurance plans must cover birth control -- a provision that's already benefited 62.4 million women including 1.4 million women in Massachusetts. With this rule in place, any employer could decide that their employees no longer have health insurance coverage for birth control. This rule goes into effect immediately.

Now is the time to pass the Contraceptive ACCESS bill and protect birth control coverage for Massachusetts women. I ask that you take proactive action on this issue locally by reaching out to the Chairmen of the Joint Committee on Financial Services, Representative Michlewitz and Senator Eldridge, and urge them to report the ACCESS bill favorably out of committee.

This commonsense, nonpartisan bill has overwhelming support and is backed by Massachusetts insurance plans, health care providers, business leaders, and advocacy organizations. Support among voters is strong too in fact, 81% of Massachusetts voters support passage of a state law guaranteeing no-copay insurance coverage of contraception, according to a poll commissioned by the Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund.




The United State is at a historic 30-year low in unintended pregnancies, which researchers have attributed, in part, to the increase in birth control access. We can't afford to see those positive public health trends reversed.

I ask you to reach out to the Chairmen of the Joint Committee on Financial Services and urge them to swiftly move the bill out of committee. We don't have time to wait.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
