Contraception Accomodation: Who Pays For This?

If not the religious institutions….or the women….who pays for the contraceptive services?

The Obama administration claims it pays for itself, pointing to this new report.

“While the costs of contraceptives for individual women can be substantial and can influence choice of contraceptive methods, available data indicate that providing contraceptive coverage as part of a health insurance benefit does not add to the cost of providing insurance coverage. Evidence from well-documented prior expansions of contraceptive coverage indicates that the cost to issuers of including coverage for all FDA-approved contraceptive methods in insurance offered to an employed population is zero.”

We shall see what the insurance companies say…
