White House Offers Compromise on Contraception


Sort of?

LINK

quote:

Kathleen Sebelius, the secretary of health and human services, said the proposal would guarantee free coverage of birth control “while respecting religious concerns.”

Churches and religious organizations that object to providing birth control coverage on religious grounds would not have to pay for it.

Under the proposal, the administration said, “eligible organizations would not have to contract, arrange, pay or refer for any contraceptive coverage to which they object on religious grounds.” Female employees of such organizations would receive contraceptive coverage through separate individual health insurance policies, without having to pay premiums or co-payments.

The proposed rule is somewhat ambiguous about exactly who would pay the costs.

Insurers would bear the initial cost, but would save money in the long run because they would “experience lower costs from improvements in women’s health and fewer childbirths,” the administration said.


Companies with an objection (i.e. Hobby Lobby) are still going to have to fight it if they don't want to pay for it. This is just churches, from what I understand.

If contraception truly lowers health care costs, then why doesn't the insurance company offer it for free today? Seems like Aetna and Cigna would be donating money to PP and other groups to offer free-upon-request BC vouchers, etc.

At this point let the courts decide the matter. At least the courts will provide a basis from which to move forward. Taking the administrations offer is way too uncertain.

I read another article from a different source that said they're assuming the cost will be distributed among all users?

This is just a pointless political move that doesn't actually help anything. Someone still has to pay for it.

Hey, I got a three-month supply of my pills back in December and I paid for them.

You don't have to pay for me until next month.
