    UPDATE: Even for those students who can’t get Georgetown to cover their contraception, there is still hope. CNS News reports the following item:

    CNSNews.com confirmed, however, that the Target store at 3100 14th St., NW, in Washington, D.C., which is 3 miles from the Georgetown Law campus, offers Tri-Sprintec, the generic form of the birth-control pill Ortho Tri-Cyclen. Target sells a month’s supply of this birth control pill for just $9 to individuals without health insurance coverage for the pills.

    A CVS pharmacy only two blocks from the Georgetown Law campus also sells a month’s supply of the same generic birth control pills for $33.

    Tri-Sprintec is an FDA-approved prescription drug and is the generic version of Ortho Tri-Cyclen. The Physician’s Desk Reference (PDR) says it is for: “Prevention of pregnancy.” It is also decrease the risk of ovarian or endometrial cancer and, for some women, to fight acne.

    There is nothing in this world that is actually free. Buy one get one free offers, not really free. Free warranty when you purchase a product, not really free. Free trips not really free. There is a cost associated with everything that is called free. Calling those things free is not actually incorrect, though.

    Insurance companies reviewing medical records to verify information that was provided is common. Insurance companies discussing an issue with an insured or doctor to clear up confusion (or interrogated if you prefer the emotionally charged language) is common. This is not something that only occurs with BC.

    Georgetown's policy is to cover BC when necessary for reasons other than contraception. In this case, there appears it was just a wrongful denial. The answer to that does not have to be forcing religious organizations to pay for items directly against their religion.

    Its amazing that with all the problems we are now facing that this is even worth discussing to the length of 63 pages.

    -Gas at record high prices with no relief in sight, still dependent on ME oil
    - Record debt that our grandchildren will still be paying for
    -Big totalitarian goverment exerting more & more power over our everyday lifes

    I could go on & on but this is not even a top 20 issue right now, just a distraction that the Obama admin. are throwing
    out there to distract you from the trainwreck that is happening before your very eyes.

    The ship is taking on water and starting to go down & you are trying to fix the rail on the deck.

    But by all means go ahead & enjoy your free birth control benefit while you pay for 5$ gas & your home is worth zilch.

    Maybe we should pass a "the sky can not fall" bill to relieve some of your stress. Maybe then we could also pass a bill allowing people to think about more than just one issue at a time. How wonderful that would be...

    Just like a Liberal to think that most problems can be solved by another bill and another goverment dictate

    Of course this is a valid issue that is worthy of discussion at some point on some level, but what seems to go right over your's & others heads is that this issue came straight from the White house with the aim of changing the discussion from the presidents job peformance on the bread & butter issues which most polls indicate, he's dropping like a rock.

    Actually, singling this out as free is incorrect. What one gets as compensation is the insurance. Often, there is a co-pay. It is rare that there is't. Regardless, whether they contribute to the insurance or not (different places have different contribution rules), the insurance is the compensation, and how that insurance is used is up to the individual emnployed. This is really simple. And it should not be seen as giving anything for free. This is compensation for employment, so the employee has given his or her daily labor for the compensation.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    BC pils are being mandated to be covered without co-pay.

    Regardless, whether they contribute to the insurance or not (different places have different contribution rules), the insurance is the compensation, and how that insurance is used is up to the individual emnployed. This is really simple. And it should not be seen as giving anything for free. This is compensation for employment, so the employee has given his or her daily labor for the compensation.
    First, Georgetown insurance is not compensation. These are students, not employees.

    Second, the compensation that is offered is determined by the employer. Wether the employee wants to accept the offer is up to the employee. In the case of religious organizations, they offered as compensation insurance that specifically excludes birth control as contraception. The insured and the religious organization are saving money on insurance premiums. The people that accepted the job, accepted the compensation that excluded birth control pills used as contraception.

    It's free birth control pill, in the sense of anything else in this country that is free. Prior to my wife having BC covered from her insurance, we were paying 50-60 (I can't recall which exactly) per month. Now, she gets it free through her insurance, since she is not paying at the point of picking up the pills. I know you realize this, but want to insist that since she's paying a small increased premium for the BC coverage, it's not really free. You are wrong. If we were to use your definition of free, we could get rid of the word, because nothing in this country is truly free.
