This white paper was developed by the Reimbursement Workgroup of the New York City LARC Access Taskforce. The paper has a specific focus on IUDs and implants because of the unique barriers providers and institutions face in stocking and providing these devices, including high up-front costs and challenges in securing adequate reimbursement for the device and its insertion.
