Agreed. OB/GYNs are typically considered primary care physicians. In all my years, I have NEVER had any gyn care denied or uncovered. Gynecologists are gateway docs for many women to other services.<quoted text>
Sounds good on paper, doesn't it? By "comprehensive gynecological coverage" did she mean free birth control? If so, that is one of the many reasons why premiums are going up in 2014 - allowed by law, as long as it covers expenses.
I must say that I ain't young and I have never, ever had an insurance company deny GYN care.
The free birth control--that with no copay--is nonsense. No one was preventing women's access to it prior. Can I claim there is limited access to other necessary meds such as blood pressure meds, chemo, insulin, Synthroid, or other needed maintenance meds because there is a required copay? I don't have any heartburn paying a copay for any of these--and all are as expensive, sometimes much more expensive, as birth control.
