Birth control delivery startup Pill Club publicly accused CVS Caremark of cutting payment rates for mail-order birth control pills, making it more expensive and potentially out of reach for women who can’t get to the pharmacy every month.

The feud spawned the trending hashtag #CVSDeniesCare and shined a spotlight on the issue of cost and accessibility in birth control.

More than 19 million women in the U.S today report living in an area without access to contraceptives. 

Today on All Sides Wellness Wednesday, birth control news, social determinants of health, and more.
