Why is this??

Okay. So I can birth control for free or next to nothing. But I have to pay a big chunk of change for condoms. Now, yes I could go to the clinic and get free condoms, but they aren't Trojans. Trojans are the best, according to my hubby.
Ever wonder why an insurance company will give you free drugs but not any other preventative action? Like....pharmacies could easily give you condoms. Just a thought.

  • I'll apologize your question has me giggling!!! My grandmother told me BC cost exactly 25 cents. You just have to keep the quarter between your knees. Hope I got a smile..........

  • I have always paid for BC, so I guess I don't feel that way about other forms.

  • Ummm my insurance company doesn't pay for BC....

    What's messed up is MOST insurance companies WON'T pay for BC, but they pay for Viagra. They'll pay for man to get an erection, but won't pay for you to prevent pregnancy....

  • My insurance does cover condoms... And other OTC drug store items...

    But I always buy our condoms through ripnroll - they are super cheap that way... Trojan's are a little pricier, but we always bought the "sample pack" which is 100 condoms for $25 and it has all kinds of brands and types...

  • You make sense. I've found the trojans are the only ones that don't break.

  • I think b/c birth control pills are by prescription, they are a sure bet, if you take them as prescribed. I had a condom break about 2 yrs ago and Im wayyy too old to have more kids. The guy thought it was funny, but it scared the crap out of me! Nothing funny about a condom breaking. A doctor cant assure that of happening either, so thats why they are not approved by a doctor

  • LMAO Kiss1224. That is great!!
    I can't believe not all insurance companies do not cover birth control. That is just crazy.
