Speaking with former President Bill Clinton yesterday, President Barack Obama suggested that under Obamacare young women may get back more in “free contraceptive care” each month than they pay out in premiums.
“And because all the insurers who participate are required to, for example, provide free preventive care, free contraceptive care, that young woman, she may make up what she’s spending on premiums just on her monthly use of health care,” said Obama.
This was based on Obama’s assumptions that a young woman would in fact be using some contraceptives on a regular monthly basis and that her health-insurance premiums would cost less than her monthly cell phone bill.
