Study Published In Contraception Evaluates Medical Expenditures For Unintended Pregnancies And Potential Cost Impact Of Increased Use Of Long-Acting Reversible Contraception
Date:9/13/2012

WAYNE, N.J., Sept. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals Inc. today announced that a new study published in the journal Contraception shows that if 10 percent of women in their twenties -- the age group associated with the highest number of unintended pregnancies annually in the U.S.1 -- changed from oral contraception to long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) such as the implant, intrauterine device (IUD) and hormonal intrauterine system (IUS), an estimated $288 million would be saved each year in third-party payer medical costs.1

"Popular methods of contraception are effective with correct and consistent use, but strict adherence to a birth control regimen is a challenge for many people," said study researcher James Trussell, Professor of Economics and Public Affairs and Faculty Associate of the Office of Population Research at Princeton University. "Greater use of LARC would lower the costs of unintended pregnancies in the U.S."

LARC is the most effective type of reversible birth control available and does not depend on daily adherence.1 Short-acting reversible contraception (SARC) includes the oral contraceptive pill (OC), male condom, patch, injectables and vaginal ring.  Inconsistent or incorrect use of birth control accounts for nearly half of the three million unplanned pregnancies that occur each year in the U.S., and for a majority of the estimated $4.6 billion in related annual medical expenditures.1

The economic model utilized in the study estimated cost savings that might be generated by a subset of women aged 20-29 changing to LARC from other contraceptive methods, as this age group currently accounts for 53 percent (1.67 million) of unintended pregnancies every year.1 Three scenarios of switching were explored, all of which generated cost savings with higher LARC usage. Researchers found that the largest saving
