Emergency Contraception

EMERGENCY CONTRACEPTION (EC) FOR SEXUAL-ASSAULT SURVIVORS

New York law ensures that sexual-assault survivors receive access to emergency contraception (EC) in hospital emergency rooms.  As part of the minimum standards for the examination and treatment of a sexual-assault survivor, a physician or other health-care provider must provide a woman with medically and factually accurate information about EC, offer her EC, and dispense EC to her upon request.

The commissioner of health is required to develop, prepare, and produce informational materials about EC for distribution to and use in all hospitals in the state. The commissioner also may approve such materials from medically recognized sources.

N.Y. Pub. Health Law § 2805-p (Enacted 2003).

MEDICAID COVERAGE OF EMERGENCY CONTRACEPTION (EC)

New York provides Medicaid coverage of emergency contraception without a prescription.
