REPORT: Women’s Health Coverage Since the ACA:
Improvements for Most, But Insurer Exclusions Put Many at Risk

 

This report, supported by The Commonwealth Fund, highlights the tremendous advances of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) for women but also examines important services that are excluded from many plans in the health insurance marketplaces, including genetic testing and fetal reduction surgery.

The report calls for state insurance regulators to ensure increased transparency so that women can make informed decisions about which health plan to buy and don’t find out about these exclusions at the time that the service is denied.
