Majority of Americans Support Obamacare Birth Control Provision: Survey

TUESDAY, April 22, 2014 (HealthDay News) -- Nearly 70 percent of Americans support the new health care law's mandated coverage of birth control, a nationwide study finds.

University of Michigan researchers surveyed adults in all 50 states and the District of Columbia about universal coverage for birth control, which is being challenged in the U.S. Supreme Court.

"There is an ongoing national debate about contraceptive coverage requirements in private health plans in the U.S.," study author Dr. Michelle Moniz, an obstetrician/gynecologist and researcher at the University of Michigan Medical School, said in a university news release.

"Our study found that 69 percent of U.S. adults support requiring coverage of birth control in health plans. This indicates that the majority view in the United States is that coverage for contraceptives should be required," she added.

The greatest support for this provision of the Affordable Care Act comes from women, blacks, Hispanics, adults with private or public insurance, and parents with children younger than 18 at home, according to the study, published April 22 in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

The researchers also asked survey participants their feelings about mandated coverage of other medical services. There were high levels of support for mandated coverage for mammograms and colonoscopies (85 percent), vaccinations (84 percent), screening tests for diabetes and high cholesterol (82 percent), mental health care (77 percent) and dental care (75 percent).

Less than 10 percent of respondents supported mandated coverage for all services except birth control. This group included a high percentage of men, people older than 60, and those without children in the home.

"In this study, women, blacks, and Hispanics were more likely to support coverage of birth control medications than were men, older individuals and adults without children in the home. In other words, support is higher among individuals who may be more likely to directly benefit from affordable birth control," said Moniz, a member of the university's Institute for Healthcare Policy and Innovation.

"This isn't only a women's health issue. It's an issue that is just as important to families and communities," she added. "Our findings suggest that a policy requiring all health insurance plans to cover birth control medications is consistent with the beliefs of the majority of Americans."

The Supreme Court is considering the arguments of business owners who say their religious beliefs protect them from a requirement in the new health care law that health insurance plans cover all forms of contraceptives.

White men are afraid of losing their status and prefer to keep women and minorities subordinate to themselves. The best way to do that is to keep us occupied with basic survival like food and shelter which is magnified the more mouths you have to feed.
I don't buy the whole religious objections at all. It is a way to protect white male patriarchy plain and simple.

I'm confused. So every woman has BC on her plan automatically or can you opt out and pay less?

As far as I know, like other insurance services, it's covered with no extra charge. You can't opt out and pay less.

Most insurances don't have an opt out option for things you don't use.  You can just pick a less expensive option with fewer things covered.  The ACA requires that certain things be covered though.  I'm paying for prostate exams that I don't need too. LOL

No it just means birth control would be covered just like any other drug. I don't take any drugs but I still have prescription drug benefits that I pay for.

It also covers preventative healthcare visits for women with no extras charge too which is great.

Is that Viagara covered?  I'm still mad those bastards never complained about that and never had "religious concerns" about it.  Jesus aint said nothing about boners.

I do know we spent a good deal of medicare money on penis pumps.  I'm okay with that as long as people stop getting huffy about birth control.  LOL
