State Mandates Ultrasound but Women Must Pay the Bill

        State Mandates Ultrasound but Women Must Pay the Bill

 

Richmond, Virginia — March 27, 2012 — Senator Barbara A. Favola (D- Arlington, Fairfax and Loudoun) spoke passionately on the floor of the Senate yesterday about an amendment requiring insurance companies to cover the recently passed mandated ultrasounds before an abortion. "I urge my colleagues to vote for this amendment.  Women with health insurance pay, on average, $500 more per year in out of pocket medical costs than men who are insured.  Expanding the number of health procedures that insurance companies do not have to cover is going in the wrong direction.  It is the height of hypocrisy to mandate a medical procedure yet not require insurance companies to cover the procedure.”
