The Washington State Attorney General’s Office recently secured an agreement with Molina Healthcare of Washington requiring the insurer to clearly specify that both copper and progestin-based IUDs are fully covered in its Washington health plans.
This consumer protection action stemmed from a report by NoHLA, Contraceptive Coverage in Washington State's Qualified Health Plans, which raised concerns that insurers were misinforming women about the full extent of their new reproductive health benefits.
"Within weeks of NoHLA's Medicaid training, I was able to use the information you taught us to identify numerous cases in which families were wrongly denied coverage—and to bring those cases forward to get them resolved.
By giving all of us tools and knowledge to successfully advocate for people, NoHLA has impacted so many lives – making healthcare accessible and helping families avoid financial disaster."
