On the way home from my swim I was listening to CNN and a woman was talking to a group about the most current health insurance reform bill. Now first off I have to say I have not read the bill yet and I have heard very little about it, so I don't have an opinion one way or the other and I'm not meaning to start a political discussion. The woman (now that I'm home I realize it's First Lady Michelle Obama) was talking about women's medical issues and said that some insurance policies do not cover pap smears or mammograms. While I don't doubt that there are some really, really bare bones plans out there, I was wondering how many of the women on my flist who *do* have insurance, but it doesn't cover these tests. This is the first time in my life I have *not* had insurance and every plan I've ever had covered these tests. Pap smears yearly and mammograms after a certain age (and I was able to get my baseline at 30 because of family history). Thanks in advance for taking the time to answer.
