20. Back in the good old days of the 60s, 70s, and even 80s
if it wasn't OTC and an MD wrote a script for it, ALL meds were covered, not exceptions for BC or anything else. I processed insurance claims back then. None of this my religion objects to your contraception, digestion, heart, etc., meds. If it required a script for dispensation, it was covered. Back in those days employers didn't even charge their own employees for health coverage. My husband's vasectomy was covered under his insurance as Elective (not COSMETIC) Surgery, just the same as his HIP REPLACEMENTS 2 years ago were also covered as ELECTIVE Surgery. Elective Surgery just means that you don't need it SAVE YOUR LIFE. COSMETIC Surgery are things like face lifts, nose jobs, etc. A vasectomy is COSMETIC? lol No, so it is ELECTIVE.
It seems just as with young women needing to know what it used to be like in the past, EVERYONE needs to know how different it was in the past.
