On Thursday, May 3rd the Senate approved a bill to allow birth control over-the-counter.
The bill, HB 1822, would allow a woman to purchase hormonal contraceptives directly from a pharmacist, after completing a screening interview. Any health insurer licensed in New Hampshire would have to cover the screening interview. Any pharmacist dispensing birth control pills would have to complete a training program.
The bill now heads to Gov. Chris Sununu for his signature.
