Arizona Birth Control Bill

March 28, 2012 by staff 

Arizona Birth Control Bill, Arizona State Rep. Debbie Lesko sponsored a controversial bill on birth control coverage. An Arizona bill that could force some women to submit personal medical information to their employers about their non-contraceptive use of birth control would also require those women to pay a processing fee for the privilege.

A sentence in the bill, which has passed the state House of Representatives and is pending in the state Senate, would establish a processing fee to handle women’s claims seeking coverage under their employer’s health insurance plan for the cost of birth control pills for other medical purposes.

The bill would allow employers with religious objections to decline to cover birth control for the purpose of preventing conception. Employers would be required to pay the cost of the pills when they are prescribed for other medical reasons. Republicans and Democrats are arguing about the precise interpretation of the controversial measure.
