The ACA covers voluntary sterilization 100%.
Only for women, correct? After all, I don't think that I have ever read about men's sterilization being covered by the ACA!
Indeed, one of the many stupid and unfair parts of the ACA:
Plans aren’t required to cover drugs to induce abortions and services for male reproductive capacity, like vasectomies.
(Which is funny because I hear a lot about how ACA forces people to cover abortions...)

However, call your insurance and check. My insurance covered both TL and vasectomy (and IUDs, too) at 90% coverage even before the ACA. I only had to pay 10% of cost.
Thanks, I have Aetna and I knows it's a pretty good insurance but I guess I'll have to do my research to find out exactly what they cover. I do like that they have to cover some form of permanent sterilization:)
Aetna is usually good. (I don't have them, but I know their offerings based on my previous job.) You can call them and ask what they cover, that is what I did and it's the best way to get answers.
