Health Care System Factors for Births from Unintended Pregnancies

Health Care System Factors

Family planning services are available in Utah from several sources: community health centers, Planned Parenthood Association of Utah clinics, Family Planning Elevated, and private providers. Utah law requires unmarried minors' parental consent to obtain contraception information and services from community health centers and clinics. A 2018 Utah law allows pharmacies to dispense three contraception types - pills, patch, or ring - through a standing order signed by the Utah Department of Health's executive director. People 18 years and older can go to any participating pharmacy to receive their pills, patch, or ring directly from the pharmacist. For more information and to see a list of participating pharmacies, see As of August 1, 2012, non-grandfathered plans must provide coverage for preventive women's health care, including contraception and counseling, without cost-sharing. Medicaid also provides family planning counseling and FDA-approved contraceptive methods without cost-sharing.
