I don’t know about you, but most of my New Year’s resolutions revolve around saving money and living a healthier life… sound familiar? Well, thanks to the health care law, making those resolutions a reality just got easier and cheaper!On New Year’s Day, many more health plans came under the reach of the health care law and will be required to cover certain women’s preventive health services with no co-payments.

Spread the word by forwarding this email! Make sure your friends and family know they may have these important services in their health plan!

You may be getting certain preventive services with no co-pay, thanks to the health care law.
These services include:

  • well-woman visits
  • all forms of FDA-approved birth control
  • breastfeeding support, supplies, and counseling
  • screening for gestational diabetes
  • DNA testing for high-risk strains of HPV
  • counseling for sexually transmitted infections, including HIV
  • screening for HIV
  • screening and counseling for domestic partner violence.

Over the past few months, I’ve heard so many wonderful stories of women who have received one or more of these important benefits without a co-pay because their plans were already covered by the new law. Now, even more women won’t have to worry about the cost of a co-payment when obtaining preventive health care — a significant step forward for women’s health.

Make sure your friends and families know important preventive services may be covered in their health plan with no co-pay! Spread the word by forwarding this email!
