Actually, Massachusetts and most of New England were the last to come on board for deductible plans for the most part.This has been common in the majority of the country for quite some time.

LibertyNEWS.com – Obama’s Government Releases TV Ad Bragging About How Easy HealthCare.Gov Is To Use and How Much Cheaper Rates Are (VIDEO)
President Obama emerged on Monday to assure Americans that the “kinks” surrounding the federal and state health-care exchanges are improving and urged consumers to call the exchange hotline if they continue to encounter problems online. Shortly after he made the suggestion, Twitter lit up with reporters and others who attempted to do so but failed to get through to a navigator as promised. After dialing the number, some callers got a busy signal, others received an automated message, and yet others were referred back to Healthcare.gov.
Isn't this wonderful! Not sure how it helps women to get free birth control from their employers healthcare plans when their jobs disappear. Yea for Obamacare! I'm thinking I would rather have a job than free birth control. So exactly who is waging a war on women?

I don't get how that information means that women are not being employed...unemployment went down. Maybe the women aren't actively seeking work? Preferring to stay at home?
Who are these super healthy, never sick people who will never need insurance? I mean, as a population US citizens are some of the unhealthiest in the world.
Jessica - You can probably answer this. If my company offers insurance plan A...we are all on the exact same plan and have acess to (and pay for) the same services, right? So for example, plan A covers prostate exams, which I would then "pay for" so to speak by paying my premiums, even though I don't have a male prostate to get examined. On the other hand, Bob is also on plan A which covers birth control, so he "pays for" birth control, and Mary and Jane are child free by choice, but they pay for maternity care, and so on. Like, we all just have access and pay for the same group of services, right? It's not like Bob (or Bob's company) would pay less because he doesn't use hormonal birth control, or I would pay less because I don't get prostate exams. Is that right?
