It’s Time to Move Forward and Protect Women’s Health Care


A year ago today, the President signed the Affordable Care Act into law changing the lives of millions of women and their families across this country. And states have an important role to play in shaping how the law is implemented. We need each Governor to move forward and implement the health care law in a meaningful way, which will lead to improvements in the health of women and their families throughout their state.

Tell your Governor: help move us forward by protecting women’s health care.

Thanks to the new health care law, women and their families are already benefitting from this critically important law. For example:

A mother who is diagnosed with cervical cancer can focus on her treatment and not worry about whether her insurance company will drop her because she got sick;

A woman can go to her gynecologist and get a pap smear without a referral and without paying a co-pay;

A child with asthma won’t have trouble getting health care coverage because of a pre-existing condition or face a lifetime cap on coverage.

The new health care law puts an end to insurance companies treating women like a pre-existing condition. Already, the law is helping women and their families by making it illegal for insurance companies to drop people once they get sick, prohibiting insurers from denying coverage to kids with pre-existing conditions, and ensuring new health plans provide no-cost preventive health care services, such as mammograms and pap smears.

Tell your Governor we can’t go back — protect women’s health care in implementing the health care law.

On this important one  year anniversary of the Affordable Care Act, it’s time to move states forward and protect women’s health care.
