Let me just say that I have paid nearly 30 years for an insurance policy that covers penile cancer.  I have paid for over 10 years for an insurance policy that covers Viagara prescriptions.  I have paid for a policy that covers sickle-cell anemia and cerebral palsy and juvenile diabetes.  I have paid for a policy that covers spina bifada and Down's syndrome and prostrate cancer, circumcision and hemophilia.  The odds are just about zero that I will ever need to use my policy for any one of these conditions, but I don't mind that they're included in my premium.  I believe in reciprocal back-scratching and because of my history with asthma, I appreciate its efficacy.

Kinda pisses me off that people who may need to use that coverage (which from what I've seen tend most to be the Viagara prone ones) get so bent outa shape when contraception becomes part of what's covered on their policy. Single payer would be so much better, but ACA hands down trumps what came before.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
