Connecting Workplace Leave Policies to National Health Care Transformation The National Partnership for Women & Families conducted a series of interviews with stakeholders from the private, nonprofit and public sectors to understand whether emerging trends in United States health care policies provided new openings for advancing workplace leave policies. This research was designed to investigate opportunities to tie workers' access to workplace leave for their own health needs and the health needs of their loved ones (earned paid sick days and paid family and medical leave) to government, provider and employer efforts to improve health care utilization and delivery systems, promote prevention and wellness, improve caregiver engagement and reduce health care spending.

CPeH appreciates the opportunity to provide input on Stage 3 advancements in the definition of meaningful use of health IT. In Stages 1 and 2, the Meaningful Use Electronic Health Record (EHR) incentive program created foundational capabilities for delivering care differently and supporting payment models that incentivize the kind of health care individuals need and deserve. In Stage 3, we need to begin movement beyond the medical model to a more comprehensive, person- and family-centered model for supporting health and wellness.

challenges as personal and individual, but the reality is that nearly all workers – whether old or young, married or single, parent or not – will face urgent personal and family needs at some point in their lives. Children are born, elderly relatives need care, childcare needs arise, and yet there’s no national standard for addressing these challenges.

The Medicaid expansion included in the Affordable Care Act is an historic opportunity to extend much needed health care coverage to millions of lower income Americans. Traditionally, Medicaid coverage has been limited to only to certain segments of the low-income adult population – parents whose dependent children live with them, disabled individuals, and pregnant women (but only for the duration of their pregnancy and 60 days afterward).
Medicare is a linchpin of financial and health security for millions of older women – including more than 447,000 older women in Alabama – guaranteeing them coverage for affordable, quality health care.
Emergency contraception (EC), also known as the morning after pill, prevents pregnancy for up to 120 hours after unprotected sex, sexual violence or contraceptive failure such as a missed birth control pill or broken condom. EC is a safe and effective way to prevent pregnancy and should be available to all women.
When campaigns end, the hard work of implementing policy begins. At a time when millions of families are facing economic distress, wage and pregnancy discrimination continue, workers are struggling without family friendly policies, women’s access to reproductive health is at risk, and health reform implementation remains under attack, achieving meaningful policy changes that improve life for women and families must be a top priority.

How important is it to you that Congress and the President consider new laws to help keep working families economically secure, including ensuring workers the right to earn paid sick days and creating a system of family and medical leave insurance - very important, somewhat important, not too important, or not important at all?
Research clearly shows that there is no connection between credit information and job performance or turnover, yet employers across the country run credit checks as part of their hiring processes.
