You’re Entitled to Free Preventive Care, Including Birth Control 

Since 2012, nearly 30 million women have benefited from free preventive services including checkups, screenings for diabetes and HIV, contraceptives and family planning counseling. Keep in mind, health plans may not cover all birth control, so your preferred method may not be one of the ones provided, but you will have at least one free option. Also, certain religious employers are exempt from the birth control requirement.
