@Lana_Rose:  Why is your insurance through Catholic Health Services if you don’t agree with their medical beliefs? I mean, I get your frustration, but I would have chosen different insurance to begin with.

@Lana_Rose:  the good news is YOU HAVE A CHOICE! that’s outrageous, ridiculous and stupid, i agree, but its critical information to have, now. what if you had kept them, TTC and went to have a baby with them and they had all kinds of weird rules about what they would and would not cover for a pregnancy and birth?! yikes!

@Lana_Rose:  NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Oh, this pisses me off to no end. Damn. I will send you a small donation to cover the cost. (For reals. But also: small. Sorry!)


This is BS of the highest order.

I love how we are not supposed to impose our beliefs on religious employers and they don’t have to cover birth control with the health care they provide, and yet they are allowed to impose their beliefs on others.

I have friends who use the wife’s insurance and because she works at a catholic hospital they wouldn’t cover her fertility treatments. Luckily they’re pregnant now without having to do in vitro but I know they spent at least 10k out of pocket.

@Lana_Rose:  Ugh, 1) none of their business and 2) The idea that IUDs CAUSE “abortions” is outdated and 3) switch companies ASAP.

I would not trust any company that won’t cover MY health because of THEIR beliefs vs. medical science.

Check out PlannedParenthood–They’re only like $300 through them!

And if you’re lower income, the sliding scale could potentially make it even cheaper.

@Lana_Rose:  Really stupid question, and maybe a poster with IUD experience can answer, but what is it about IUDs that makes them more “wrong” in the Catholic church’s eyes?

It sucks that that happened to you, but at least you found out now than after you were pregnant.

@Lana_Rose:  My Mom works for a Catholic School and we, myself included when I was on her insurance, dealt with the same sort of problems with birth control. It’s all very ridiculous, but Catholic institutions are among the few the government excluded from having to provide coverage for bc.
