BANKING ON WOMEN

If You’re Insured, Your Vagina And Ovaries Are Too!

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has just recommended that all private medical insurance providers fully cover contraceptives, emergency contraceptives, well woman exams, STI testing, and other preventative medicine regarding female reproductive health. This means that all these things could be covered as early as next August. Preventing a pregnancy certainly costs less than managing an unwanted one and reproductive health is important to a woman’s overall well-being, so this is certainly welcome news!
