State budget expands family planning services to men

Email

Wisconsin's health insurance companies will have to pay for contraceptives under the new state budget.

And family planning services like birth control and tests for sexually-transmitted diseases will be given to men as well as women in state health programs.

Also, the budget makes Wisconsin pharmacies always have someone available to dispense contraceptives. But Karla Ashenhurst of Ministry Health Care says it's still not clear if pharmacies must stock contraceptives.
