Emergency Contraception | National Women's Law Center
◾Thanks to the new health care law, all new insurance plans are required to provide insurance coverage of all FDA-approved contraceptive methods, including EC, without cost-sharing. However, plans do not have to cover those brands of EC that are available without a prescription, unless a woman gets a prescription for it.
no authority by government to dictate to parents that minors, be given access to a pill.

I'm curious - since the morning after pill, by its name and purpose, is a pill to be used the morning after or shortly after unprotected sexual intercourse, you're saying a woman would make an appointment for her doctor to prescribe a medication available over the counter. Since it's supposedly an emergency medication, I presume the prescription is for one pill because most women who aren't prostitutes wouldn't have multiple sexual emergencies would they?
Nothing about this whole situation makes sense to me. However, thanks for the information and I'll have to do more research before I'm satisfied. I will say, however, that it's clear from what you're saying and provided that indeed insurance companies are covering the costs of OTC contraceptives provided the woman gets the medically unnecessary prescription. You've proven your assertion false.
