Institute of Medicine Recommendations Released; Birth Control Could Become a Copay-Free Preventive Service

Birth control was included, along with services related to STIs, breastfeeding, and domestic violence.

    It would be wonderful if these women’s health services would be covered. There are too many women who need these services but can not afford them.
