LARC


  • Improve access to long-acting reversible contraception (LARC): Expanding access to immediate postpartum LARC in hospitals statewide through training focused on the clinical skills and administrative processes necessary to implement this evidence-based option. Medicaid covers LARC during the hospital stay but most hospitals in NM have not initiated postpartum LARC insertion. NMPC is a core member of the New Mexico state team participating in the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) Learning Communities for Increasing Access to Contraception.
