Arizona

NIRH is continuing their work with the Arizona Family Health Partnership (AFHP), to, increase the availability of immediate postpartum LARC in hospitals across the state. A leader of the Arizona LARC Coalition, AFHP is using its findings on barriers to LARC reimbursement and provision to address challenges at individual birthing hospitals, including community and rural hospitals. After successfully working with Medicaid to increase reimbursement for inpatient LARC devices in 2019, AFHP is also continuing its advocacy with both private and public payers to improve reimbursement. NIRH has supported this work since 2018.
