Free Rx = Higher Premiums

The Institute of Medicine wants women to get free birth control pills. Care to guess how much free costs?

As reported by the L. A. Times . . .

The Institute of Medicine report, commissioned by the Obama administration, recommended that all U.S.-approved birth control methods -- including the "morning after pill," taken shortly after intercourse to forestall pregnancy -- be added to the federal government's list of preventive health services.

With some pills running $90 per month care to guess how much will be added to premiums to cover the cost of free medication?

Do any of these folks bother to think before making recommendation?

Apparently logic is not a prerequisite for being hired by these organizations.
