Publicly-funded family planning services provide essential health care that low-income women urgently need. For many women, the cost of contraceptive services is a significant barrier to accessing this important care.
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) aims to improve conditions for pregnant women and new parents by providing the services they need to have healthy pregnancies and provide their children with a good start in life.
In 2010, the year the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was signed into law, approximately 19 million women – one in five women ages 19 to 64 – were uninsured. By 2014, the ACA will provide nearly all of these women with access to comprehensive health coverage by expanding Medicaid eligibility, making private plans more affordable, and eliminating discriminatory practices that have long kept women and small businesses out of the private market.
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is the greatest advance for women’s health in a generation. Improving health care has long been a priority for women, reflecting their experiences as patients, mothers, and caregivers.
Between 2010 and 2014, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) progressively implements an array of rules and protections to make the private health insurance system – including employer-sponsored plans – better meet the needs of women and families. In particular, the ACA will help rein in premium increases, improve the adequacy of benefit packages, and make coverage more reliable.
