"Instead the amendment includes layers of accounting gimmicks that demand that
plans participating in the Exchange or the new government-run plan that will be
managed by the Office of Personnel Management must establish “allocation
accounts” when elective abortion is a covered benefit (p. 41). Everyone enrolled
in these plans must pay a monthly abortion premium (p. 41, lines 5-8), and these
funds will be used to pay for the elective abortion services. The Reid amendment
directs insurance companies to assess the cost of elective abortion coverage (p.
43), and charge a minimum of $1 per enrollee per month (p. 43, lines 20-22)."
