Jim Geraghty working through the illogic of the HHS mandate. Tweets from February 17, 2012:
Under the Reign of Sebelius, why must we ban co-pays for birth control but not for annual physicals? Vaccinations? Any lifesaving care?
Government cannot mandate copay-free coverage of a widely-used service w/o increasing premiums for all. Stunning how many insist otherwise.
Birth control cannot simultaneously be an inexpensive expense to mandate to insurers AND too expensive for patients to buy themselves.
