Is female contraception covered?

In most cases, female contraception is covered by the Major Medical Benefit. However, contraceptive pills are paid from the Savings Account and the Out-of-Hospital Expenses Benefit if they are prescribed for reasons other than contraception (for example, for skin problems). Examples of contraceptive pills that we do not cover under the Major Medical Benefit include Cyprene-35 ED, Diane–35, Tricilest, Ginette and Minerva.
The consultation and the cost of procedures for IUDs are paid from the Savings Account and the Out-of-Hospital Expenses Benefit. Only the cost of the IUD itself is paid from Major Medical Benefit.
