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.
Prior to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the cost of health insurance placed a particular burden on lower-income women who needed health care services but often struggled to pay insurance premiums and the out-of-pocket costs of care.
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).
Women of color, many of whom have unique health issues or are disproportionately underserved by the current health-care system, have much to gain under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
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.
Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), many women of childbearing age will gain access to affordable health insurance for the first time.
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.
Many women have questions about health insurance, the insurance marketplace, and how to choose the best health plan. While every family will have unique health care needs, this fact sheet can help you make the best choice when it comes to selecting the right health plan and using that plan to pay for health care services.
Abortion is one of the most common medical procedures for women; an estimated one in three women will have an abortion in her lifetime. The majority of women who have abortions already have at least one child and many list the need to care for their children as a primary reason not to have another.
Today, many uninsured or underinsured Americans receive their care from publicly funded clinics and health providers across the country known as essential community providers (ECPs). Many of these providers do not require insurance or any payment.
Thanks to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), quality health insurance is now more accessible to women and families. More than eight million Americans have signed up for health coverage through health insurance marketplaces since October 2013.
