What government health care covers and what it doesn't?

Want contraceptives? Covered, even though it is something that everyone, even someone on welfare, can afford. If you have breast cancer and just happen to be a man, apparently forget it. From Fox News:

South Carolina health officials announced Friday that they will cover a local construction worker's breast cancer treatment under Medicaid even though federal guidelines exclude him because he is a man.
The decision effectively dares the federal Medicaid office to reject the claims for his treatment, and it sets up a potential showdown between state and federal officials. . . . .
