Men Need Maternity Care!

Most men don’t get pregnant, yet.

NC Republican Rep. Renee Ellmers asked HHS Sec. Kathleen Sebelius, “As far as [Obamacare’s] essential health benefits, do men not have to buy maternity care?” Sebelius: “Policies will cover maternity coverage. For the young and healthy, under 30-year-olds will have a choice also of a catastrophic plan that has no maternity coverage.” Ellmers: “But men are required to purchase maternity coverage.” Sebelius: “Well, an insurance policy has a series of benefits whether you use them or not.” Ellmers: “And that is why health care premiums are increasing, because we are forcing them to buy things that they will never need. Thank you.” Sebelius: “The individual policies cover families. Men often do need maternity care for their spouses and for their families, yes.” Ellmers: “A single male, aged 32, does not need maternity coverage. To be the best of your knowledge, has a man ever delivered a baby?”

Maybe O'Care’s mandatory maternity coverage for males envisions that, one day, the gender lines will be so blurred that “males” are giving birth.
