Although this preventive measures could actually reduce overall health cost,  for example  reducing unwanted teen pregnancy. But free services in general result to increase demand and could lead to expensive tests and treatments.

Currently insurance company charge a co-payment for contraceptive drugs and devices, if  these services will be free than somehow insurance companies have to recover their losses and this will result in higher premiums for everyone, a hardship as we all struggle already to find affordable health insurance in Brentwood and California.
