Really.....So you think your plan won't be cancelled so you can have birth control? Will you pay the fine or pay more money? Or even, will you be taxed for a Cadillac plan like my brother in law? There is no evading it, you will pay more. There may be a group of people that fit between the cracks, but it is looking like a dam small group.
Kevin, I don't have any idea what the impact will be long term. My current plan covers birth control, and I recently got a letter that said it meets the requirements of the Affordable Health Care Act...so I did not bother to research it any farther. My monthly contribution has not changed, but perhaps the company's has.
My wife just completed open enrollment for her plan also, no significant changes (at least not yet) for her either.
