and why should we have to pay for "folic acid" supplements for every pregnant woman!!!!!  A bottle costs around $4 - this is just like birth control pills - why should I pay for someone to have birthcontrol, abortions, babies???

I notice there a lots of caveats like "of a certain group," "of a certain age," "of a higher risk," etc.  It looks like an Obama or Bush signing statement limiting the effects of the (and subsequently the cost) area to whatever a bureaucrat thinks is appropriate, not insurance for all. :pondering:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."

Someone already did.... it's now part of EHR reporting requirements and doctors who do mot comply have their Medicare reimbursement cut...permanently....  and some people still think single payer is a good thing...  / sarcasm.... it makes doctors nothing more than ward's of the state.

Not one little bit, but they are spreading our money around..Money that should  or could have been applied to healthcare to try and convince people to sign up for this monster.  When it all shakes out this is going to be s trillion dollar disaster.

I would say, "In related news ..." but the fact is that Obamacare won't cover any of this anyway. Nothing to see here.

Gynecologists Run Afoul of Panel When Patient Is Male
By DENISE GRADY
Published: November 22, 2013



About two months ago, Dr. Elizabeth Stier was shocked to learn that she would lose a vital credential, board certification as a gynecologist, unless she gave up an important part of her medical practice and her research: taking care of men at high risk for anal cancer.

The disease is rare, but it can be fatal and its incidence is increasing, especially among men and women infected with H.I.V. Like cervical cancer, anal cancer is usually caused by the human papillomavirus, or HPV, which is sexually transmitted. 

Though most of her patients are women, Dr. Stier, who works at Boston Medical Center, also treated about 110 men last year, using techniques adapted from those developed to screen women for cervical cancer.   

But in September, the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology insisted that its members treat only women, with few exceptions, and identified the procedure in which Dr. Stier has expertise as one that gynecologists are not allowed to perform on men. Doctors cannot ignore such directives from a specialty board, because most need certification to keep their jobs.

Now Dr. Stier’s studies are in limbo, her research colleagues are irate, and her male patients are distraught. Other gynecologists who had translated their skills to help male patients are in similar straits.  ...
