Yup, it is truly amazing, losers like you need a "caring" government to look out for them. Why should a couple in their late 50's be required to have insurance that covers maternity? That covers child care? Require coverage for birth control?

First of all, "most group plans—such as the ones most employed people have—already cover maternity care (and birth control). That means employed men and women have FOR YEARS already been in the same situation with regard to pregnant women that people in individual-market plans will be starting in 2014."

You can thank the self-indulgent health care industry for the need mandatory coverage for maternity care and birth control. If they had been more forthcoming in the past, it would not have been necessary for the government to step in and force them to be responsible.

"According to the New York Times, in 2011, 62 percent of plans in the private market did not cover maternity care at all. The National Women's Law Center, looking at a narrower slice of the population, found that in 2009, only "13% of the health plans available to a 30-year-old woman" across the country in the individual market covered maternity care—and "in the capital cities of nearly half of the states there was not a single plan available through eHealthInsurance.com that covered maternity care." Insurers were also allowed to reject pregnant women from coverage for having a pre-existing condition (pregnancy), and to exclude women who'd had a Cesarian section from coverage entirely (since they'd be at risk of needing another if they were to have another kid)."

The Affordaable Care Act is righting the wrongs. If that cost you an extra $20 a month so be it.

Why is Obama still occupying The White House? I would be happy,if like 'Dallas',I could just wake up one day and find out the past several years were just a bad dream/nightmare. Unfortunately,we live in the real world and Obama is trying to destroy our country.

Probably because some of us had something to say about an imposter posing as a president who hijacked this country to fundamentally transform until it was unrecognizable?

And he and his minions haven't finished their mission yet?

Just a guess.

very few group plans cover dental care, usually a separate policy, so they will not qualify....

most also do not cover drug abuse treatment...

most policies will be cancelled....

...if the plans cover birth control pills, it is with a copay just like any other drug...and therefore "substandard" under ObamaKKKare and subject to cancellation...

Thanks for admitting what we already knew from the beginning.

The fact that your president claimed that "Obamacare" was an appropriate name for the ACA because "I do care" is perhaps the biggest lie he's told to this point.

No one can STILL have their head that far up Obama's azz after everything that's transpired over the past 2 months without being one of the two.
Ya, I know, but every now and then I like to rub something in his stupid face.
