birth control over the counter

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.

If passed, SB 154 would make oral contraceptives available without a prescription.

According to the bill, pharmacies, including mail-order pharmacies, could dispense oral contraceptives "to persons 18 years of age or older without a prescription after an initial consultation with a licensed or certified health care provider."
