<span class="articleLocation”>The New York State Department of Financial
Services (DFS) said on Tuesday it was investigating whether
health insurers complied with its contraceptive coverage
requirements.

The investigation comes after an undercover sting of 15 New
York health insurers found that 11 of them provided inaccurate
or misleading information about contraceptive coverage, the DFS
said. (on.ny.gov/2m8rJPq)

The DFS, which did not identify the insurers, could not be
immediately reached for comment.

All health plans in New York are required to provide
coverage for all contraceptive drugs and devices and all
non-grandfathered health plans must cover at least one form of
contraception in each of the FDA-approved contraceptive delivery
methods without co-pays, coinsurance or deductibles, regardless
of the future of the Affordable Care Act.
