What The Debate On Women’s Health Is Overlooking | HealthyState.org – Florida Health News.

“HealthyState.org explores the health benefits of contraceptives while breaking down the core of the issue (minus the sensationalism that’s been taking over the conversation).

While similar laws ensuring women’s preventive care have been on the books in 28 states, it would be the first such guarantee in Florida. Plus, the federal law goes beyond state laws to say that insurers cannot charge a co-pay or deductible for contraceptives.

Women’s reproductive health care sometimes involves medications and devices best known for preventing pregnancy. And that can cause people to miss the point, said Dr. Catherine Lynch, an ob-gyn and associate vice president for women’s health at University of South Florida’s medical school.

“Oral contraceptive pills are not just for contraception anymore,” she said. “They have multiple non-contraceptive benefits and indications or uses that have significant health benefits.”

The contraception coverage stems from the Affordable Care Act, the health care reform law. As the Obama Administration developed the specifics of the law, it drew on advice from the Institute of Medicine for how to improve preventive care for women.”
