Should it be available for single and family employees? And yes, many single people do engage in premarital sex. Would the cost of the bill outway the insurance rate increases associated with child birth? This cost is passed on to all the employees.
I'm glad I live in Australia! We pay about $15 for 3-4 months of birth control here.
Is it expensive there?
Yes, to me it is cost effective for the insured and the insurance company. A baby cost way more than a year supply of birth control pills.
Birth control pills are just another treatment to achieve, support and maintain health. It's a prescription drug provided by a physician. If you have presciption drug coverage (with its copays) it should not be excluded. Marital status is irrelevant.
Insurance plans and coverages are not the place to debate religious issues.
I think i should get free health care and have all my meds paid for.
I think you should pay for it
We have medicare here, which every Australian is eligible for. Basically you get free basic health care and it covers all your hospital stays etc.
So you have the baby for free in the public health system, and also get about $5000 as a "baby bonus" over the six months after birth.
You guys have cool accents AND free healthcare?
LOL @ The cool accents!
But basically, yes. You aren't allowed to choose your doctor or if you have an elective c/section and you have to share a room, but it's pretty good for something free.
If you want an elective care, a dedicated obstetrician and your own private room with ensuite, you need to goto a private hospital though.
Yes it should be covered. They can cover alcohol, speech, and other type of rehab therapy, I think covering birth control should be under that umbrella also.
If you want your insurance to cover birth control, then buy a policy that covers it.
Don't expect me or other taxpayers to pay for it.

I read this was true and I just have to know if it is, please! Please provide links to prove what you say. Surely we are not going to be aborting babies ready to come into the world fully developed and healthy?
