NEW YORK – The Department of Financial Services (DFS) today issued a circular letter to remind and instruct insurers about their responsibilities under the new Comprehensive Contraceptive Coverage Act (CCCA), which will take effect on January 1, 2020. The CCCA codifies current federal preventive care contraceptive requirements, ensuring that even if the federal law is repealed, New Yorkers will still have access to cost-free care and services under New York State law. The law includes coverage without cost-sharing and coverage for over-the-counter (OTC) and emergency contraceptives.
