Biden administration looks at expanding OTC medication coverage

The Biden administration is aiming to expand insurance coverage for certain over-the-counter medications, including contraception, The Hill reported Oct. 2.

In addition to Opill, the administration is also looking at expanding coverage of smoking cessation products, folic acid for pregnancy, as well as certain breastfeeding products, The Hill reported.
