New Women's Health Care Benefits

Submitted By: Liz Cooper,  

Starting today, all new health insurance plans must provide certain preventive health benefits to women for free. 

Under the Affordable Care Act, for the first time ever, women will now have access to life saving preventive care, without paying anymore out of their own pockets. 

An estimated 47 million women will have access to the preventive services they need. 

It's a requirement of the health care reform law passed in 2010.
