Public Notice of Proposed Action for Medicaid Coverage of Contraceptives

The South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (SCDHHS) gives notice of the following proposed action to allow coverage for a 12-month supply of systemic contraceptives through Title XIX of the Social Security Act Medical Assistance Program (Medicaid).

Effective on or after July 1, 2020, SCDHHS proposes to amend the South Carolina Title XIX State Plan to allow, with prescriber’s indication, coverage of up to a 12-month supply of systemic contraceptives.
