Good news for the ladies!!

Hurray!

On 5/11/15, the Department of Health and Human Services (ObamaCare)  told insurance companies they HAVE to give ladies access to  ALL federally approved methods of birth control.  NO EXCEPTIONS!

Women’s groups have been reporting that IUD’s, Plan B, the patch, and the ring have been refused by many insurance companies.  According to the White House, this is breaking the law.

Another positive step in the enforcement of some good bits of the Affordable Care Act.

Good News for All You Ladies in CA!

Ladies!

Were you excited to hear that the new federal law, The Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare,) would make it so your health insurance would cover your birth control, but then were disappointed to find out that your specific brand was the exception to that rule?

Well, the State of California has passed SB 1053 that improves the access women have to THE FULL RANGE of contraceptive methods!

The ACA lacked clarity and that led to the health insurance companies interpreting it in a different way than the law intended.  Some plans covered the full range of contraceptive methods, some had co-pays for rings and patches, and some didn’t cover IUD’s.  The federal law had wording that wasn’t specific enough regarding female care.  Confusion reigned.

The goal of SB 1053 is to make it so YOU and your doctor are making the best choice for your health, and SB 1053 is helping make that happen in California.

SB 1053 was passed on September 25th.   Find out more at cfhc.org or healthlaw.org.…
