The health care law requires new health plans to cover certain preventive services. This means that, as an increasing number of health plans come under the law's reach over the next few years, more and more people will have access to a wide range of preventive services without co-payments, deductibles, or co-insurance. This is especially important to women, who are more likely than men to avoid needed health care, including preventive care, because of cost. This requirement is a huge step forward for women's health.
The National Women's Law Center has been working hard to make sure women and their families know about the preventive coverage provided through the health care law. We've heard from many women about how much this coverage has helped them but we've also heard about some women encountering problems while trying to get these services without cost sharing. This toolkit is designed to provide women with information on the coverage of preventive services in the health care law and tools they can use if they encounter problems with this coverage. We have also provided detailed instructions on how to file an appeal with insurance companies and draft appeal letters on a range of preventive services
