this is how it relates to maternity coverage in this thread...
the thread is about the changes the republican senators and house representatives want to make to obamacare...
one of those changes are to remove the idea that those pesky mandated coverages be removed, ya know,
preventive tests for cancer,
if I were to guess which coverages on the list insurance companies would be more apt to cut...
it would be birth control and maternity care..... and I remember when it was like that.
so, you 45 year old smoker would probably still get their free cancer screening to make sure she hasn't condemned herself yet, but well, the 23 year
old women might find that she has to pay for a very expensive rider to add to her insurance for maternity care... simply because half the population
will never have to worry about getting pregnant and they seem to be the ones making the big decisions most of the time..
and, I just love how you seem to hint that only those who abuse their health could possibly have complications while delivering a baby, or that all
complications can predicted before labor starts... neither is even remotely true...
so we are back to my previous statement...
what you have to justify is why on earth a poor single mom that has no income whatsoever can have taxpayer funds pay for her to safely deliver her
child in the hospital while the taxpayer women who finds that adding maternity care to her health insurance is way too expensive should have to settle
for second best and risk her life with a home birth when she would just like the same frigging healthcare that she is paying taxes for the other women
to have in the hospital environment!!! good luck on that one!
