WVC 33 - 16 E- 1 §33-16E-1. Findings; short title.
(a) This article may be referred to as the "Prescription Fairness Act of 2005."

(b) The Legislature hereby finds and declares that:

(1) Contraceptives prevent unintended pregnancy;

(2) Planned pregnancies lead to healthier pregnancies, children and families; and

(3) Contraceptive coverage provides West Virginians with critical access to birth control.

(4) Therefore, the Legislature finds that prescription contraceptives are basic health-care for West Virginia's women and families and that health insurance plans which include a prescription drug plan should be required to cover contraceptives.
