President Obama is scheduled to announce Friday afternoon a revamp of his contraception policy requiring religious institutions to fully pay for birth control, changing the onus on who pays for contraception from employers to insurance companies. Obama to announce revamp of contraception policy - Political Hotsheet - CBS News SO let's see how that might work. religious hospital contracts for health insurance for employees. BUT some employees want birth control pills. OK it would seem the insurance company will need two sets of books then. 1) for employees that don't want. 2) for employees that do want contraceptives. So if the employer DOES NOT want to pay for contraceptives, WHERE will the money come from to pay for the contraceptives? Because the company doesn't keep two sets of books now they will have to have then : One set for premiums and payments for employees NOT wanting contraceptives One set for premiums and payments for employees WANTING contraceptives. NOW mind you religious employer that objects to paying for contraceptives will require the insurance company to prove NO co-mingling of FUNDS i.e. that can't have their payments being used for contraceptives! That's the ONLY way I can see where the Insurance companies can be the one responsible for paying for contraceptives!
