The Affordable Care Act works to promote women's health. New plans will cover a range of preventive services and screenings with no out-of-pocket costs. Here's a quick look at how women may benefit from the new law.
New health plans will cover the following types of recommended screenings and services for women with no out-of-pocket costs—as long as you visit a doctor in your health plan's provider network.
Beginning in 2014, many insurance plans will include coverage for certain medical care considered essential for maintaining good health and treating most illnesses. Essential health benefits include maternity and newborn care, along with vision and dental care for children.
A major goal of the law is to reduce the number of uninsured, so your gender or a health issue won't keep you from getting coverage. You can get coverage, even if you are currently pregnant. Plus, you can't be charged higher premiums than men for the same health coverage.
