US Govt Says Insurers Should Fully Cover Birth Control
The US government has mandated that health insurers should fully cover birth control for women without copays. This decision is expected to have a profound impact on health care.
The new health care legislation also mandates coverage for a variety of women’s health conditions. The improved guidelines have been devised to give women the required health benefits.
The new law will be effective from Jan. 1, 2013. It is expected that millions of American women will gain from it.
The law aims to prevent unintended pregnancies and also to space out births to enhance the prospect of healthy babies. The new services are expected to raise the cost of premiums for those having health insurance.
