Thanks to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), women will no longer need to worry about getting much of the preventive health care they need because of the costs associated.
A new provision in the ACA went into effect August 1, 2012, which requires all new health plans to cover the following services without co-pays or deductibles:
• Well-woman visits
• Gestational diabetes screening
• HPV DNA testing
• STI counseling, and HIV screening and counseling
• Contraception and contraceptive counseling
• Breastfeeding support, supplies, and counseling
• Domestic violence screening
