While I'm not the biggest Obama fan, I do like what he did here. He's making it possible for women to get the health care that they need. Insurance companies now have to provide to following, without cost sharing:
-- well-woman visits;
-- screening for gestational diabetes
-- HPV DNA testing for women 30 years and older;
-- sexually-transmitted infection counseling;
-- human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) screening and counseling;
-- FDA-approved contraception methods and contraceptive counseling;
-- breastfeeding support, supplies, and counseling, including breast pumps; and
-- domestic violence screening and counseling.
The vast majority of insurance companies do cover men's health issues, and also cover Viagra and other ED drugs. They have barely covered women's helath or contraceptives.
This new regulation now permits women to get the health care that they need. What do you think?
