  •  If the complaint they put forward is true, (5+ / 0-)

    that they do not want to contribute to anything that will help their followers sin, then this change appeases their concern.  they will not pay a dime toward sin.

    It has the added benefit of making insurers do their job AND it makes more people think about universal coverage, single payer, public option, the problem with your employer deciding what healthcare you can and can not have...lots of big, big issues are out there now, being discussed.

      I just don't want some surprise to sprout up that will create a new burden on women, or be to restart this debate....

      •  The burden is on the insurance company, (0+ / 0-)

        where it belongs.

        •  Do you trust insurance companies? (0+ / 0-)

          Here is my recommendation....for anyone that signs up for the plan, a email or call should be made to the employee, who by clicking a link or answering a question, can have the additional coverage.

          However, there is clearly a cost to this, so we need to make sure the insurance companies implement this correctly...(i.e send a snail mail letter, and force women to filll out an additional application, and not provide a reasonable time to respond).
