Birth Control medication denied

Before Kancare, one of the individuals on my caseload, was able to get her prescription for birth control pills filled without a problem. Since Kancare, she has been denied by Amerigroup. We met with the care coordinator recently to report this and she said she would look into the problem. The pills cost $68 a month and she is on a very limited monthly budget and cannot afford this out of pocket expense.

    I don’t understand this MCO policy of not paying for birth control. It is hard to imagine anything more preventative in terms of this woman’s health and the high costs associated with what would likely be a difficult pregnancy. Please let us know if this policy gets changed so that she has access to birth control.
