This is how I feel about the BC debate

We are doomed if we do and we are doomed if we don't. Somewhere, something's gotta give.



Oh dear, I should have known it would go into a debate. Maybe my title was not correct. What I was trying to comment on was not the whole free bc issue, but the issue that no matter what a women does in terms of family planning, she will always be criticized about one or all of her choices by one or more groups of people. It was more the notion that we are doomed (by someone) no matter what we choose to do.

This is what I get for posting and running!!! LOL. Sorry if I misled you!

Re: This is how I feel about the BC debate

My only sticking point is the 'free' part.

If we have to pay $530 every 3 months for the medications my husband needs to not DIE then women can pay a $25 copay on birth control considering 98% of the time it's not life or death that they take it.

BCP's at least ones I was on are $4 if you go to a place with that plan. Just an FYI.

LOL! Okay $4...

My body rejects all hormonal forms of birth control and I come >thisclose< to bleeding to death anyway so the copper is out so I am not aware of what BCP costs on our ins...I believe it is Tier 3 which means it costs $13 for generic and something like $30 for name brand or something like that. (and I think that's for a 3 month supply so...)

Re: This is how I feel about the BC debate

LOL, did the math really quick, a copay on birth control would have to be just over $44 a month for a woman to pay in one year what we pay in 3 months...We pay roughly $175 a month for insulin, syringes, other medication...and we have really really really good insurance and a pharmacy onsite at my husband's work that gives us a HUGE discount. If we went to any other pharmacy we'd be paying almost triple what we pay now.

Re: This is how I feel about the BC debate

Everything I have read says the mandate requires all businesses and all insurance companies to provide plans that covers female birth control with a $0 copay.

The debate stems from the mandate that requires hospitals, churches, businesses, etc owned by religious people that have a moral opposition to birth control.

I couldn't care less if the Catholic church has to provide birth control for their nuns. My sticking point is the FREE part, the $0 copay. That pisses me off considering there is no government intervention trying to make the medications my husband needs to not die any more affordable.

Call me a prude, but if you think you are responsible enough to have sex then you should be responsible enough to pay for your birth control, right? Even without health insurance, there are places you can get free condoms.
