Access to affordable, quality health care is central to older women’s quality of life and economic security. The good news is that if you are a woman 65 years of age or older, you have a lot to gain from the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
Health insurance is critical to making health care services accessible to women and families, yet the cost of coverage can put it out of reach for many, especially those who do not receive insurance from their employers.
Today more than ever, there is greater recognition within health care organizations that patient- and family-centered care (PFCC) is an effective strategy for achieving the Triple Aim.
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.

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.

States across the country are increasingly enacting laws mandating how health care providers must practice medicine, regardless of the provider’s professional judgment and the needs of his or her patients.
