Similar to state laws, the Equity in Prescription Insurance and Contraceptive Coverage Act (EPICC
), (34) first proposed in 1997, would require private health plans to provide equitable coverage for prescription contraceptives.
In 1997, Senator Olympia Snowe and other lawmakers introduced the Equity in Prescription Insurance and Contraceptive Coverage Act (EPICC
), which would amend ERISA and require all private insurers providing prescription drug coverage to also include coverage for prescription contraceptive methods.(61) The Act received little media attention until the impotence drug Viagra was released into the market in the spring of 1998; critics noted that while more than fifty percent of insurers provided reimbursement for the impotence prescription, fewer than thirty percent covered any form of contraceptive prescriptions.(62) While EPICC
has not progressed through the legislative process, a third of senators and a quarter of representatives have signed on as co-sponsors.(63)

would "prohibit insurers that offer prescription drug benefits coverage from excluding contraceptive drugs and devices approved by the Food and Drug [Ad]ministration (FDA) or restricting the coverage for these drugs in ways other drug Ad coverage is not restricted."(16) Since there is no uniformity between contraceptive coverage state legislation, millions of women will likely fall through the cracks and loopholes created by state laws.(17) Any chance for a uniform, all encompassing law mandating prescriptive coverage of contraceptives must come from the U.S.
