If your plan is “grandfathered” then it is not required to pay for contraceptives without cost-sharing. If you are in a non-grandfathered plan, however, your contraceptive costs should be covered. Your plan must cover at least one type of IUD, and the provider visits for insertion and removal, with no co-payment. You should talk to your provider about which IUD is best for you. If your plan will not initially cover this IUD with no co-payment, you should ask your provider to request a “waiver” from your insurance plan.
