Once again, California blazes the way for the rest of the nation. Last week, Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill into law that states that women will be able to pick up a year’s supply of birth control pills at one time. Before this law passed, pharmacists were only able to dispense birth control in three-month supplies. (And I know I’ve had trouble with even that.)
Worried about if your insurance will cover it? No need: the new law also requires that the new year-at-once be covered in healthcare plans.
The new law goes into Jan. 1, 2017.
