U.S. Dept. of Health Annouces Birth Control & Other Preventative Services to Be Covered w/o CoPay

Finally, the government has done something to better our healthcare system. Now women can get the care they deserve without having to pay a fortune for it. I'm surprises that insurance companies haven't offered contraceptive services for free a long time ago as it has to be much cheaper than the delivery of a baby at a hospital. I'm glad the wife and I waited before shelling out $800 for an IUD.

Today’s announcement builds on that progress by making sure women have access to a full range of recommended preventive services without cost sharing, including:

* well-woman visits;
* screening for gestational diabetes;
* human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA testing for women 30 years and older;
* sexually-transmitted infection counseling;
* human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) screening and counseling;
* FDA-approved contraception methods and contraceptive counseling;
* breastfeeding support, supplies, and counseling; and
* domestic violence screening and counseling.

    Good find but...

    "New health plans will need to include these services without cost sharing for insurance policies with plan years beginning on or after August 1, 2012. "

    They are just going to jack up prices to cover up for it. There are no free lunches.
