    However, I share your outrage.

    •  What numbers did you use? (0+ / 0-)

      Uncomplicated C-section births are running over $10k, and the insurer is also on the hook for the first 30 days for the infant's care.

      Also, it would depend on the plans, because for some plans, the copay of $40 just about covers the full cost, but if the copay that is eliminated is $5, then the difference is small.

      In general, though, in a less regulated market, actuaries voted to pay for abortions but not for birth control. Until the law required it, most plans didn't cover birth control at all.

      Fry, don't be a hero! It's not covered by our health plan!
