    It doesn't matter what I think it will increase the premium. There are two things at play here, the aggregate number of claims wil increase my premium and I have to pay for something that I not possibly benefit from.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Not that I know of, I've never seen it on a policy.
    I don't mind paying a little bit more in my insurance premium to cover the costs of a circumcision because I know this is preventative medicine, even though I will never ever need to have a circumcision (hopefully - LOL). Why wouldn't you (and the others here who are DEAD SET against it) feel the same about birth control for women?
    Circumcisions are elective.

    Circumcisions actually are elective, but they are classified as elective preventative care, which is different from an elective procedure in general.

    You seem to be confusing "how insurance works" with "how an individual insurance plan works."

    I've never seen them covered on a policy, at least not specifically and I sold. There may be a state mandate, there may be companies that cover it but I've never seen it, and regardless it is a one time expense if covered, BC and Viagra are not.

    No, insurance works like that. It's not like people get money back if they don't utilize certain services. They are covered for those services though.

    I'm not sure if they are covered or not. I was talking about the designation specifically. There's a difference medically between elective preventative care and elective care. Technically, a yearly doctor visit is elective preventative care.

    Correct, but what besides pregnancy does BC in general prevent. Some people claim they lessen the effects of PMS, okay, but so do hormone treatments, and *if* a physician signs off on an order for preventative BC as a medical necessity properly it would be covered(many people don't know that). The problem is that the less than 25% of women who have major issues that complicate periods and benefit from a BC medicinal use are going to be underrepresented by the larger percentage that uses it for non-medical purposes, it IS offensive then to pay for a lifestyle choice.
