Getting the Coverage You Deserve: What to Do If You Are Charged a Co-Payment, Deductible, or Co-Insurance for a Preventive Service

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.
