National Partnership for Women & Families

Health Care

The Affordable Care Act is the law of the land. It’s the greatest advance for women’s health in a generation, and the National Partnership fought hard for its passage.

Health reform is a victory for every woman who has been unable to afford health coverage. It is a victory for every woman who has been overcharged because of her gender or denied coverage because of age or health status. It is a victory for every woman who has struggled to get the prenatal, maternity and preventive care she needs. And it is a victory for patients and caregivers who struggle to navigate a fragmented, uncoordinated system.

Much more work lies ahead. That’s why we are working every day to ensure this historic law is implemented effectively. And we won’t stop until our health care system finally delivers the quality, coordinated, patient- and family-centered, comprehensive health care that women and families deserve.
