Legislature,  stated that  proposed  HB 25  mandated that  health

contraceptives at one  time.  She reported  that currently, women                                                               
who  used prescriptive  contraceptives  needed to  return to  the

prescriptions.   She pointed  to the  difficulties for  women who

lived in  rural areas of the  state of getting refills  so often.                                                               
She shared  that the Centers  for Disease Control  and Prevention                                                               
(CDC) recommended  dispensing a  year's supply  of contraception,                                                               
as  missing  pills was  a  major  reason for  oral  contraceptive                                                               
failure leading  to unintended pregnancies.   Greater  access and                                                               
availability  to contraceptives  reduced unintended  pregnancies,                                                               
with  a  direct cost  savings  to  the  state.   She  noted  that                                                               
hormonal contraceptives  were used  for reproductive  health care

prescriptive  contraceptives more  easily  available, which  made

JUDY ANDREE,  League of Women  Voters, stated that the  League of                                                               
Women  Voters  fully  supported comprehensive  affordable  health                                                               
care for all people, including  reproductive health care, and the                                                               
availability of  birth control.   She stated that the  ability to                                                               
avoid  unintended  pregnancies was  of  primary  importance to  a                                                               
woman's health  and her  ability to  chart her  own future.   She                                                               
relayed that planning a pregnancy  with the help of birth control                                                               
could increase a  woman's economic opportunities.   She said that                                                               
this could  also lead to savings  to the state, as  64 percent of                                                               
pregnancies required public  financing.  She pointed  to a letter

was the time  to accept birth control as an  important and normal                                                               
part of women's health care, and  that it should be as affordable                                                               
and  accessible, as  possible.   She  reiterated  support of  the

Violence  and  Sexual Assault,  offered  some  background on  the                                                               
network,  that  it was  comprised  of  19 member  programs  which

previous year.   She said  that access  for a 12-month  supply of                                                               
contraceptives allowed protection and  a reduced risk of coercion                                                               
from an abuser.   She stated that  it was a common  tactic for an

abusive relationship became more limited.   She stated that a 12-

KATIE  BRUGGEMAN  declared  that   the  U.S  Supreme  Court,  not

shared that one reason to support  the bill was that lower income

there were also fewer administrative  costs.  She stated that the

planning should  be a right.   She stated that the  proposed bill                                                               
offered families the power to make responsible decisions.

REPRESENTATIVE EASTMAN asked for the division's perspective.

Development, replied that the Division  of Insurance had prepared                                                               
a  zero-fiscal  note   for  the  proposed  bill,   and  that  the                                                               
administration's  stance was  officially  neutral.   She  relayed                                                               
that  this  legislation would  be  processed  to ensure  that  it                                                               
adhered to Alaska statute before approval by the division.

REPRESENTATIVE EASTMAN asked  what changes would need  to be made                                                               
for this to be done voluntarily.                                                                                                
                                                                                                                                
MS. LATHAM  replied that it would  need to be driven  by a change                                                               
in Alaska statute.                                                                                                              
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE EASTMAN  asked what,  in statute, would  keep this                                                               
from being changed if it was desired.                                                                                           
                                                                                                                                
MS.  LATHAM offered  her  belief that  nothing  in statute  would                                                               
prevent this  from an insurance standpoint,  although there could                                                               
be another prescribing requirement or other issues.                                                                             
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR  SPOHNHOLZ  suggested that  the  bill  sponsor could  offer                                                               
additional information.                                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
MS. KUBITZ in  response to Representative Eastman,  said that the                                                               
proposed bill was  not a mandate to  insurance companies, however                                                               
it allowed  for an option  to the  consumers.  The  proposed bill                                                               
would be a mandate to make  it available, as it was currently the                                                               
"culture of the insurers" to only offer shorter supplies.                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  EASTMAN  questioned  the  financially  beneficial

when they usually acted in their own economic best interest.                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  MATT CLAMAN,  Alaska  State Legislature,  offered                                                               
his  belief that  it  would  be necessary  to  ask the  insurance

MS. KUBITZ  cited a  letter in opposition,  and added  that there                                                               
was a general "push back" to any mandates to insurers.                                                                          
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  EASTMAN  asked  if any  insurance  companies  had                                                               
taken this step.                                                                                                                
                                                                                                                                
MS. KUBITZ said that although  a number of states had implemented                                                               
this  mandate,  she was  not  aware  of any  insurance  companies                                                               
offering this on their own.                                                                                                     
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  EASTMAN asked  about a  response to  the concerns                                                               
for claims that this was a mandate for early abortions.                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
MS.  KUBITZ  replied  that  emergency  contraceptive  pills  were                                                               
covered  under contraceptives,  and  that the  proposed bill  was                                                               
offering  a safe  and effective  means  of preventing  pregnancy.                                                               
She  declared   that  emergency   contraceptive  pills   did  not                                                               
terminate or  interrupt an established pregnancy,  hence they did                                                               
not cause an abortion.  She  declared that the only connection to                                                               
abortion was the potential to prevent the need.                                                                                 
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE EASTMAN asked for her definition to pregnancy.                                                                   
                                                                                                                                
MS.   KUBITZ    offered   her   understanding    that   emergency                                                               
contraceptive pills prevented ovulation,  and not the termination                                                               
of an established pregnancy.                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR SPOHNHOLZ pointed out that  these were already available on

proposed  bill  was  for  an extension  to  the  availability  of

REPRESENTATIVE JOHNSTON  asked why  this 12-month supply  was not                                                               
being offered for other prescription  drugs with similar benefits

REPRESENTATIVE JOHNSTON asked about  an extension of this mandate                                                               
to include other drugs, citing that  "it's not broad enough" as a                                                               
possible problem with the legislation.

he was unsure of the details for specific medications.

some insurers  for a  90-day supply.   She  pointed out  that the

REPRESENTATIVE EASTMAN  opined that a  year was a long  period of
