Cortney Mospan Biography

Title:
Assistant Professor of Pharmacy at Wingate University
Position:
Con to the question "Should birth control pills be available over the counter?"
Reasoning:

“I also am not in support of OTC birth control because I believe this will likely cause another barrier in access: lack of insurance coverage. Prescription insurance does not require coverage of OTC medications, and in my experience, maybe 5% of the time are these covered by insurance companies. So the work that was done by the ACA to increase access through a lack of copays would be negated.”
