Who's Paying More?

Health-cost burden sometimes varies by gender | Chicago Tribune

Well now, an article noticing that all health care is not fair.

"High-deductible plans punish women for having breasts and uteruses and having babies," said Dr. Steffie Woolhandler, the study's lead author.- Chicago Tribune

When women have to pay for birth control but Viagra is fully covered for men, you know there is a problem. I don't believe this problem will be solved by Universal Health Care, but through evaluating the needs of both men and women and then making allowances accordingly.

Are you serious? Viagra is fully covered! Now that is ridiculous. Guess some women wouldn't need birth control if there was no Viagra, hmm? But birth control is certainly more important.
