Birth Control: A Teen's Rights
According to Jane's Due Process, "Teens do not need permission from a parent or legal guardian to get birth control at certain clinics in Texas." See What clinics provide confidential birth control to teens in Texas?
Birth Control and Health Insurance
From Healthcare.gov: Plans in the Health Insurance Marketplace must cover contraceptive methods and counseling for all women, as prescribed by a health care provider.
Plans must cover these services without charging a copayment or coinsurance when provided by an in-network provider—even if you haven’t met your deductible. See "Birth control and benefits."
Healthy Texas Women
HealthyTexasWomen.org has information about the healthcare services that Texas Health and Human Services offers, including information on programs to help get birth control.
Women must apply for the programs and be approved to get services. Three programs featured on the HealthyTexasWomen.org website are Healthy Texas Women, the Family Planning Program, and Breast and Cervical Cancer Services.
