Still sexist after all these years

So, Ms Burntwell and her minions have released the new guidelines on first-dollar preventive care services. These include:

■ Lactation services, including breastfeeding devices and counseling
■ Enhanced breast cancer detection coverage, including genetic screening (for women only)
■ Anorexia (overwhelmingly female)

Notice anything (still) missing?

Here's a clue.

On the plus side, one of the major "glitches" in colonoscopy coverage has been resolved:

"After colonoscopy is performed as a screening procedure based on USPSTF recommendation, the plan or issuer must cover any pathology exam on a polyp biopsy without cost-sharing."

That's nice.
