If the new president and his minions succeed in repealing Obamacare to replace it with…uh…we’ll they’ll have to get back to us on that, but: If they take away contraceptive coverage, they’re going to be angering more than a few of their constituents.
From Kaiser Family Foundation:
For the first time, the ACA set federal preventive services rules, including no-cost contraceptive coverage, for all insurance plans. If the Trump Administration modifies or eliminates the ACA contraceptive coverage rule, scope of coverage will depend on where a woman lives, where she works, and her insurance plan. Millions of women could lose no-cost coverage for the full range of contraceptive methods. Insurance companies and employers will be the ones to make choices about coverage and cost-sharing. For some women, their choices will be limited, and some of the most effective and costly methods will be out of financial reach.
