Senate Democrats set with military contraception bill

E-mail Print PDF

shaheenSenate Democrats plan to introduce a bill Wednesday that would require military health care to cover all forms of contraception without co-pays — similar to the coverage required under Obamacare.

The bill, authored by New Hampshire Sen. Jeanne Shaheen and backed by a dozen other Democrats, including Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, comes just weeks after the Supreme Court ruled that businesses with a religious objection to the health care law’s contraceptive coverage don’t have to provide it.

The ruling propelled the issue of contraception into the spotlight. It is an issue that Democrats feel will help them in this fall’s midterm elections, particularly with younger female voters.

Shaheen’s bill would require TRICARE — the program for nearly 10 million members of the armed forces, as well as retirees and families — to cover all forms of FDA-approved contraception without any co-pays or other cost-sharing.
