@Hopeful, While I do agree that insurance should pay for reversals for pain, I think a big part of why they are not involves several things.
Here in the states, such a rule/law would likely be abused by many vasectimist’s, and/or vasectomy reversal surgeons. The price of a reversal in NYC vs Tucson is considerably different. Reversals can be as low as 2500-5k -7-10k -15-25k. It depends on where they are located, how they are done, etc.
Insurance gets abuse when insurance is willing to pay for anything. Some may bill insurance 25-30-40-50+K for a reversal. This type of abuse already exists all over our medical system, medicade, etc, and within insurance in general.
No doubt vasectomy is already in bed with our medical, legal, and political system/s here. What they are doing is more geared toward male sterilization, not helping people.
Here in the states vasectomy isn’t targeting specific individuals as much like it does in third world countries. Here, you can pay for a reversal, this corrective procedure, that corrective procedure, pay for more and more crap, and keep on paying. It’s the American way.
If you were the leader of a country, and had all these people on social welfare that you had to write a monthly check to that were getting pregnant left and right, men that could not afford to support themselves let alone the girl he gets pregnant, and the child in the first place, no doubt I’d be pissed off to. Give them all a vasectomy. Make vasectomy available to all them people.
You can bet such systems exist in this country, and elsewhere. They are disguised with rainbows, smiles, and happy faces. That stuff is all over the internet.
I like to compare vasectomy to big tobacco, GMOs, Monsanto, leaded gasoline, and down the line. Very bad stuff, but very legal, and protected by law.
I’m sorry we all fell into this mess. Most of us fell into it blindly. It’s the vasectomy juggernaut doing it’s job.
