2022 Kaiser Permanente advertisement for health care costs on one of its plans (a very good plan judging from the numbers!)

That's comparable to here. Well done, at least by one measure, you're cost effective.
kaiser is one of the best insurers in the nation and only available in one state and to employed or special needs people. its not like that anywhere else.

also, and more importantly, having a baby shouldn't need to be "cost effective" in any decent well run society.

What’s really amazing is that BabyBIG was created through a joint venture between CA and MA Public Health Services and is manufactured by California’s Department of PublicHealth.
It’s 100% developed and manufactured by the public sector.

Off the top of my head here in oz , it’s about $41 for script or if low income around $7. A script is a month’s treatment, and a course usually takes 3 months. So. Around $120 for a complete course or $21 if you are on concession.

How does the bartender taste his cocktail with a mask and face shield on?

Grand Potentate Grand Potentate what are your thoughts on this:

well on the one hand its good to bring competition and money savings. on the other, if a greedy cocksucker like mark cuban is doing it and proclaiming how he's saving people money while still making a profit, you have to realize that the system is so wildly corrupt that this piece of shit is still going to make billions off this thing while charging these lower prices.

That used suitably woke language throughout from ''birthing people'' to ''Latinx'', curiously woman not used to describe these birthing people.
Would it have made you more comfortable if it just consistently used the phrase non-white? Whiteless? Lacking melanin?

Must be all those forced abortions on racial minorities and LGBTQ+ birthing people, but that article was pretty much a good example of the first world making up problems where non-existed.

You really need to go out more, and talk to real people in the real world.
Real people who have real problems, regardless of whether you think they aren’t.

Another article you skimmed for words and didn’t read.
as per usual. Not respecting informed consent choices has always been a thing for non-whites. Few know that 25% of Native American women were sterilized without consent in the 70's.

Make up your minds, I thought you guys were into abortion and not having kids? The reasons cited for this was improving their financial and quality of life, the same mass abortion ticket argument as now. But we regress, do you honestly believe that in the USA now, there's forced treatments being carried on a racial basis of birthing people because they're non-white? They'd be litigation like never before.

Edit: Apologies, I forgot to mention LGBTQ+ folk as well, as we all know, this kind of shit effects them more than womxn, but by choice in most cases.

Wut? Are you drunk?

Again, what?

You really have a very, very limited understanding of what’s happening in America.

We’ll alert the LGBTQ+ folxs - we don’t want the hordes of vicious queer assassin ninjas executing the hit they had called on you.
