"The services required to be covered without cost-sharing include screening for depression, diabetes, cholesterol, obesity, various cancers, HIV and sexually transmitted infections (STIs), as well as counseling for drug and tobacco use, healthy eating, and other common health concerns."
"These guidelines require coverage for adults and children and include immunizations such as influenza, meningitis, tetanus, HPV, hepatitis A and B, measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella. An ACIP recommendation is considered to be issued on the date that it is adopted by the Director of the CDC."
"The preventive services to be covered for children and adolescents include some of the immunization and screening services described in the previous two categories, behavioral and developmental assessments, iron and fluoride supplements, and screening for autism, vision impairment, lipid disorders, tuberculosis, and certain genetic diseases."
"Based on recommendations by a committee of the Institute of Medicine (IOM),8 federal regulations require new private plans to cover additional preventive services without cost-sharing for women, including well-woman visits, all FDA-approved contraceptives and related services, broader screening and counseling for STIs and HIV, breastfeeding support and supplies, and domestic violence screening."

The Trump Administration is preparing the essentially get rid of the "Birth Control Mandate" that ObamaCare imposes on all Employer-provided health insurance.
What I don't understand is WHY women would be so up in arms if their Employer-provided health insurance stopped paying for birth control. If you want it, you can buy it. All it does is raise the insurance cost for EVERYBODY when there's a mandate that a service/product be provided free of charge.

Under Trump, I have experienced no difficulties getting birth control. Surprise.
That's because the ACA repeal hasn't kicked in yet!
"There are multiple Federal, state, and local programs that provide free or subsidized contraceptives for low-income women, including Medicaid (with a 90% Federal match for family planning services), Title X, health center grants, and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families. According to the Guttmacher Institute, government-subsidized family planning services are provided at 8,409 health centers overall. Various state programs supplement Federal programs, and 28 states have their own mandates of contraceptive coverage as a matter of state law. For example, the Title X program, administered by the HHS Office of Population Affairs (OPA), provides voluntary family planning information and services for clients based on their ability to pay.
"The availability of such programs to serve the most at-risk women identified by IOM [Institute of Medicine, now known as the National Academy of Medicine] diminishes the Government's interest in applying the Mandate to objecting employers."

No, it's called erectile dysfunction, it means you cannot get an erection. Viagra increases blood flow to that part of the male body to facilitate an erection.
And yes, the ACA covers erectile dysfunction. It depends on what plan you have and what specific medications for ED the prescription coverage will pay for.
