Cost and Coverage of Birth Control

ANSIRH researchers have found that public funding for birth control can lead to tremendous cost savings down the line. This was true for a wide range of birth control, including the pill, the shot, and intrauterine devices, or IUDs. Studies have shown that giving patients a year’s supply of birth control pills results in fewer pregnancies over time. Giving women emergency contraception in advance can also lead to fewer public dollars spent overall.
