On Friday, October 6th, 2017 Trump changed the rules surrounding ObamaCare birth control.
Under the original ObamaCare rules every person was allowed to be covered under one type of birth control from each of the 18 FDA-approved categories free of charge. The 18 types of contraception that could be covered without cost included:
- Implantable rod
- Cervical Cap
- Sterilization surgery
- Copper intrauterine device (IUD)
- Surgical sterilization implant
- Emergency Contraception (Morning After Pill or Plan B)
- Female Condom
- Emergency Contraception (Oral Medication – Ella)
- The Patch
- Vaginal Contraceptive Ring
- Oral Contraceptives (extended or continuous use that delay menstruation)
- Oral Contraceptives with only progestin
- Oral Contraceptives with estrogen and progestin
- IUD with progestin
Now under the new rules set forth by the Trump administration there are exemptions where some employers do not need to provide free birth control based on religious objections.
With this new rule private companies, nonprofits and institutions of higher education and certain nongovernmental employers now can be exempt from the mandate to provide free birth control under ObamaCare based on their religious objections.
As a result of this new rule the employer now has the power to decide what services women have access to and not the employee.
This new rule has made many people scared that their employer will soon no longer provide birth control as a free option and many women have rushed to their doctors after the news to get IUDs before the new rule comes into affect.
According to Health and Human Services officials this new rule that has just been put into affect should effect less than 0.1% of women in the United States that are still in their child-bearing years. This percentage is based on the 165 million women in America and many of them are not in their child-bearing years.
The agency estimates that roughly 120,000 American women will be affected by these new rules.
