This is pretty awesome. We all know about the health insurance companies that pay for Viagra, but refuse to pay for contraception for women. That’s not only not right, it’s downright sexist!
But a side effect of the new healthcare law? Apparently because of a panel recommendation, health insurance companies will be required to offer contraception coverage, as well as a whole slew of other items (HIV testing, breast pumps, etc) that they don’t now.
Now THAT is good news! For the consumer, obviously.
