    Yes, you are right most do, but not all.

    What Plans Don’t Have to Cover Birth Control

    All plans, except for the following, must provide at least one method from each of the 18 FDA approved birth control categories at no out-of-pocket costs:

    • Religious employer health plans (houses of worship don’t have to provide coverage. For all other religious employers women are provided contraceptive coverage through a third party).
    • Short Term health insurance
    • Alternative plans offered by insurers that specifically exclude some forms of birth control (each exchange is supposed to offer at least one plan that doesn’t provide coverage for controversial contraception).
    Is it True That Health Plans are Now Required to Cover Birth Control for Free?

    Junk plans and STM typically have NO drug coverage of any kind.

    If you want to die on this hill, fighting for contraceptives, go for it.

    And FWIW Viagra is not a contraceptive so you are putting forth a straw man argument.

    Give it another try Sparky.

    Yes, but this is a very small amount of persons covered. The article is useless.
