@76Ytown: if you can name a specific drug that you would consider an abortion drug, then we can consider if it has a preventative role.
Norlevo, the "morning after pill" PREVENTS pregnancy by delaying ovulation.
Mitepristone, destroys a fertilized egg, terminating the pregnancy. It is a prescription only drug that is administered under the supervision of a physician.
That creates a dilemma for folks who insist that the government should not interfere in the doctor patient relationship but also want the government to prevent doctors from prescribing this drug.
@ eivo.... Go back under the bridge with the trolls

Exactly correct 76. Eivo, like it or not that's the way insurance works.
Let us know when you find an insurance pool of only healthy people without genetic flaws.

Maybe she could put a note in her tax return that her tax money only go towards funding the SNAP program.
Taxpayers don't get to pick and choose what their funds are used for.
I suspect that the same is true with healthcare premiums.
I may not like that some of my premium dollars are being spent on benefits for obese or drug rehab, but can't very well tell my insurer to refuse benefits to other folks in my plan because I don't agree with their lifestyle.

@eivo, A 2013 policy that had pre-existing conditions excluded can not be offered in 2014.
A 2013 policy that had pre-existing conditions excluded cost less that the same policy that had no pre-existing conditions excluded.
Is there some reason that would not also hold true for 2014?
So, where do you find fault with the "spin" ?

@ evivo,Are you saying that is not true?

I don't agree that HDHP is the way to go! I've carefully tracked my healthcare cost for the past 8 years, and with only one year exception my total costs have been less with traditional PPO and FSA. Even in that year, the difference was less than 100 dollars.HDHP may work for some people, but for all.

All I was saying was that your statements were inconsistant...
I didn't need a lesson on how 401ks work.

76Ytown,you said " people are given free will when it comes to their benefit choices" , then you said " employerrs are finally requiring new hires to participate in 401Ks"
Do you see the inconsistancy between these statements?
I think that you have misrepresented the auto-enrollment with required participation.
