CWN Editor's Note: Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker has signed legislation that requires all health-insurance policies to include coverage for contraception. The law—which allows for no exceptions—reverses the effect of a Trump administration policy allowing employees to opt out of contraceptive coverage for moral reasons.

    Last year I joined Liberty Health Share, a Mennonite medical plan protected from government persecutions. Last week I found out about a Catholic plan almost identical to the Mennonite one: If it were not for the "pre-existing conditions" limitation, I would join Solidarity immediately. I am still pondering whether to pay for both programs for a year, or just drop Liberty and suffer another year under the limitation. $449/month, $1,500 deductible. Mention my name.
