Insurance plans cover services for women
Thanks to the health-care law, new insurance plans are already providing preventive services, such as screenings for cancer, diabetes and hypertension, with no co-payments or deductibles.
Now, as health plans renew - commonly at the start of the calendar year - many are also required to cover certain women's preventive health services with no co-payment, including many important to expectant and new mothers.
These services include testing for gestational diabetes, counseling on sexually transmitted infections, and well-woman visits. New mothers will have coverage for lactation counseling and breastfeeding supplies. And health plans will cover the full range of FDA-approved birth control with no co-payment or deductible, which is important to mothers because birth control helps women space pregnancies to protect their own health and the health of their children.
