My Little Black Book for Sexual Health Guides Young Adults Through Health Insurance Maze

December 8, 2010

My Little Black Book for Sexual Health is a new user-friendly interactive online guide to help young adults navigate their health insurance options. This unique resource answers questions about finding health plans that work for them, why prescription coverage matters, and how birth control fits in.Ready

The REaDY Initiative created My Little Black Book for Sexual Health because young adults ages 18-26 are the group most likely to be uninsured -- and also face high rates of unintended pregnancy.

My Little Black Book for Sexual Health was developed as part of the Reproductive Empowerment and Decision Making for Young Adults (REaDY) Initiative, a unique statewide public-private partnership led by NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts and Ibis Reproductive Health, to prevent unplanned pregnancy and promote sexual health for young adults in the wake of Massachusetts health care reform. Health Care For All serves on the Steering Committee of this initiative.

This guide can help to reduce the confusion young adults face when it comes to making sure their health plan meets their sexual and reproductive health needs.
My Little Black Book for Sexual Health is available online and in a PDF format as of December 7th, 2010. And don’t forget to look for a Spanish language version coming in January 2011!
