Endocrine Society Supports Rule that will Expand and Protect Access to Contraceptive Services

April 03, 2023

Dear Secretaries Becerra, Walsh, and Yellen:

"On behalf of the Endocrine Society, thank you for the opportunity to provide comments on the Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Labor, and Department of the Treasury (“the Departments’”) proposed rule entitled “Coverage of Certain Preventive Services Under the Affordable Care Act.” Founded in 1916, the Endocrine Society is the world’s oldest, largest, and most active organization devoted to hormone research and the clinical practice of endocrinology. The Society’s membership of over 18,000 includes experts in all research and clinical aspects of hormone health, including women’s health and reproductive health. The Endocrine Society advocates for policies that will improve women’s health and increase all individuals’ access to high-quality, specialized, and affordable care. We are pleased that this proposed rule will expand and protect access to contraceptive services and urge the Departments to consider our recommendations when finalizing these expanded protections."
