Get Your Birth Control Online to Take Back Control
We know it's getting increasingly difficult to keep up with all the changes to women's healthcare happening in the United States recently.
Last week, the Trump administration announced their decision to take away an Affordable Care Act requirement stating that employers will cover the cost of birth control for their employees. This means your employer can legally decide to stop your insurance from covering your birth control method of choice without your consent or knowledge.
At Bumble, our mission is empowering women to make their own choices about their lives. We want to make sure every woman knows her options for continuing to use her birth control method of choice, no matter what Washington (or her employer) says. Bumble is committed to continuing to provide birth control coverage to all of our employees. We hope your employer will do the same.
If you’re newly impacted by this change and worried about how you're going afford your birth control without insurance help, we have a solution for you.
