Nothing To See Here: No such thing as free contraception?

We have another NTSH item concerning Sandra Fluke straight from PolitiFact's new "In Context" feature:
"Forty percent of the female students at Georgetown Law reported to us that they've struggled financially as a result of this policy.

"One told us of how embarrassed and just powerless she felt when she was standing at the pharmacy counter and learned for the first time that contraception was not covered on her insurance, and she had to turn and walk away because she couldn't afford that prescription. Women like her have no choice but to go without contraception."
It seems like at least two of the contraception methods women used--at least according to stats Nancy Pelosi and the Obama administration have eagerly tossed around--were essentially zero-cost methods.

But we'll leave those details to PolitiFact.
