NY gov requires insurance companies to cover contraception


From Fox News: New York governor Andrew Cuomo said Saturday said he was requiring health insurance companies to cover medically necessary abortions and most forms of contraception at no cost to women, a move that further protects and safeguards coverage under the federal Affordable Care Act.

The state department of financial services is mandating that health insurers in New York provide for at least one form of FDA-approved contraception exceeding a month’s supply at a time. And women must be provided medically necessary abortions without co-pays or deductibles.

President Donald Trump and Republican members of Congress have said they will repeal the health care act as soon as possible, and that is why New York must act fast to ensure women’s access to coverage and care, Cuomo said.

“These regulatory actions will help ensure that whatever happens at the federal level, women in our state will have cost-free access to reproductive health care and we hope these actions serve as a model for equality across the nation,” Cuomo said. “Women deserve to make a fair wage and the same salary as any man, they deserve to work in an office free of sexual harassment, they deserve comprehensive paid family leave, and they deserve control over their health and reproductive decisions.”

The regulations go a step further to ensure insurance companies can’t skirt laws in any way to deny coverage. Insurance companies would face steep fines if found to be violating the mandate.

  1. Cuomo is doing what Obama’s HHS did, including forcing Catholic hospitals and groups to pay for these “independent” [sarc] women’s contraception and, worse, abortifacients. Hopefully, President Trump will delete that.

  2. I hate to think what definition of medically necessary they’ll come up with.

  3. The problem with executive orders is that they’re so easily reversed. We need to get legislation passed. I hope Trump can soon start to appoint normal people to the courts.

  5. Andrew Cuomo is a dirtbag and a thug, and this was to be expected. And for his bishop or cardinal not to excommunicate him is a disgrace for the Church. He also cohabitates with a woman not his wife. The Catholic Church’s doctrines correctly call these things the sin of SCANDAL.
    This is the same Andrew Cuomo who said that pro-lifers and conservatives were “not welcome in [New York] State.”

    Catholicism maintains that sexual sins are among the worst sins one can commit. But in Cuomo’s case, it would seem his intellectual sin of Pride is worse.

    Take my word for it: He will not back down. Not even until his terminal breath. But that’s all right: He’ll get a Catholic funeral, and the priest will gush, I am certain.
    God IS NOT amused, and He SHALL NOT be mocked.

  7. They are using our tax dollars to abort American Babies so they can fill the country up with foreigners that will vote socialist.
    90% of these sluts can get one or some of their dumbass boyfriends to spring for the abortion. The other 10% are poor enough to get some welfare give-away to pay. Also the welfare Mommas need to get “clipped” after the second “mistake”. No husband, no more pregnancies. Or no welfare.

    • Longknife 21 . . . . I am all or ‘clippin ‘ welfare mama’s, be they black, white, or whatever. I recently read an article of a man talking to a younger man about why he didn’t marry the mother of his soon to be fourth child. His answer was, “Well, you see since she is single–she get all kinds of help, and handouts from the government to help take care of the kids.” It is this very mentality that needs to stop. Why should some people who have managed their lives well, so that they married before bringing children into the world have to pay to take care of the children of another couple who are breeding with feral animals? God always knew that having children willy, nilly would be bad for the children, bad for the mother, and actually bad for the father–that is why he established certain laws governing chastity. Far to many people just want to live their lives, with no care of who it hurts.

  8. Taxpayers should not have to pay for things they are or may be against, such as infant/child genital mutilation (circumcision), contraceptives and abortions. It’s like paying the devil.

  9. What a great Christian family the Cuomo’s are. Andrew and Chris must have been at the top of their catechism class. And the R.C. church is silent. God has a place for these kind of people.

  10. Well some more ignorant liberal laws. Forcing people to pay for what is a choice of others. Someone else’s sexual behavior is not my responsibility.
    I am a firm believer that if you can work, new mother or not, you do.
    You are not rewarded with money for the amount of children you decide to have, but have no intention of caring for. Having ten children gives you the same amount of money as one would give you, period.
    I have seen interviews of young men with ten kids with ten women and they get the money. They don’t work, they live off the taxpayer. One young man called himself a entrapenauer. I call him a leech.

  12. Agree crest…..sexual pleasure is NOT a Civil Right or a Constitutional Right (but I would love to see it rise up to the judicial review level to see what they say about this) and yet, that’s the way is has been treated in the courts and by the Executive Branch of our OBAMA gooberment these last 8 years… They have equated, for instance, what one BELIEVES they ARE in their heads (opposed to genetic truth) to the right to use a sexual member for sexual gratification—-and to deem that act a “civil right.” In my mind these are TWO TOTALLY DIFFERENCT THINGS.

    AND….I don’t see people, namely men…. out on the streets demonstrating for FREE prophilactics through Obamacare……and WHY?….BECAUSE no one ever demands that men be responsible for the children they create…..So, it’s ONLY the women, who, after all, can NOT deny their parenthood….who demand that the rest of the tax-paying country pay for their sexual appetite.
