Support BCBenefits: A Contraceptive Access Fund

It can cost a woman over $500 a year to access birth control. Power to Decide is here to help.

Nearly 20 million women in need of publicly funded contraception live in contraceptive deserts—counties without reasonable access to the full range of birth control—and millions more lack access to health insurance and no- or low-cost birth control. They not only have to deal with the direct costs, but also related costs like unpaid time off work, transportation, and child care. 

BCBenefits will help ease these barriers by providing women living at or up to 250% of the federal poverty level with the support they need to access the birth control method right for them.

We will provide:

  • Reimbursement for birth control costs not covered by insurance.
  • Gas cards, ride vouchers, or other transportation aids so women can travel safely to appointments.
  • Reimbursement for childcare and unpaid time off needed to attend appointments.

Support BCBenefits and the other high-impact work of Power to Decide today. Remove the barriers a woman faces in accessing the birth control method right for her so that she can live life on her own terms.
