Immediate Postpartum LARC

Improve access to long-acting reversible contraception (LARC): The immediate postpartum period provides an important and often missed opportunity for birthing people to obtain desired contraception. NM Medicaid covers LARC (IUDs and implants) provided during the hospital stay. NMPC is expanding access to immediate postpartum LARC in hospitals statewide through training and ongoing technical assistance focused on the clinical skills and administrative processes necessary to implement this evidence-based option.
