In 2004, 86 percent of employer health plans cover costs for birth-control choices, up from only 28 percent in 1993, says a new study published in the journal Perspectives on Sexual and Reproductive Health. The study says about one-third of the increase was directly tied to state mandates. So far, 21 states have passed legislation requiring health plans to cover contraceptives if they offer prescription drug benefits.
