In Fig. 2, we update our results on the cost-effectiveness of contraceptives in the United States [
] to reflect recent increases in the average wholesale price (AWP) of the Mirena IUS to $844 (an increase of 44% over the AWP of $586 in the original paper), of the ParaGard IUD to $718 (an increase of 45% over the AWP of $494 in the original paper), of the Implanon implant to $791 (an increase of 26% over the AWP of $627 in the original paper) and of the injectable Depo-Provera to $102 (an increase of 34% over the AWP of $76 in the original paper). The results for Implanon are the same for its replacement Nexplanon. We also correct an error in the annualized cost of the Mirena IUS in years 1���4 in previous corrections and updates; we are grateful to Anna Filonenko for pointing out this error. We note that calculated benchmark price has replaced AWP as the new pricing term but is calculated the same way.
