ObamneyCare© and The 1rst Amendment: UHC Clarifies

In a pair of emails, United HealthCare helpfully clears up any, um, misconceptions about how HHS Secretary Shecantbeserious is moving forward with coverage for convenience items birth control:

"On March 16, 2012, [Shecantbeserious] issued an advance notice of proposed rulemaking ... to develop alternative ways organizations objecting to coverage of contraceptive services for religious reasons can fulfill [ObamneyCare©] requirements to provide these services."

Here's an easy one: How about scuttling the mandate?

Oh, sorry: too simple and rational. My bad.

The second item focuses on the religious exemption part of the convenience items birth control mandate:

"Qualified religious organizations wishing to exclude contraceptive coverage from their health benefit plans must submit the appropriate [Torquemada-approved] certification with their renewal forms ... no less than 30 days before the next renewal date."

Bet nobody expected that.
