I wonder if women will be able to choose which birth control they get or if the free one will be the cheapest generic.

I did see the headline but didn’t read the article.

That’s really great. I hope people will use it.

@JoJo Bananas: I would guess if a generic is available for the type you’re prescribed then you’ll get that or have to pay extra for the name brand (although a doc can write you an rx for the name brand if there is a medical reason you cant take the generic). 

 

I’m thrilled about this!!!!! It makes so much sense.

Too bad it doesn’t take effect sooner since I want to get pregnant soon. I’ll be paying co-pays next year then. Either way, it’s a huge step in the right direction.

What’s the catch?  There will be a catch.  Just wait, I’m sure the insurance companies will say they don’t insure women anymore since having a vag is a pre existing condition.

I have no faith in the betterment of the insurance company run health system.

It is an awesome idea, however I highly doubt it will take place to many Naysayers on the BC pill.

Hmm…it says it will be copay free on “new insurance plans.” This might be a dumb question, but does that mean it won’t affect me because I already have an insurance plan?

I’m ashamed to be a poli sci major right now but how can he just say something and have it be so? The healthcare bill was passed over a year ago. Also, that bill also said I don’t have to pay copays for regular dr visits and I’m still shelling out $ everytime I go for a regular checkup. There will be exemptions galore.

Is Plan B considered birth control?

God, my copay for my birth control is $40/mo. It would be so nice to see that montly expense gone 🙂 Yay Obama!
