We've Got You Covered: What Women Need To Know About Health Care Enrollment

The health care law—sometimes called Obamacare—will make health coverage more affordable and easier to obtain for millions of American women. Starting in October, millions of American women will be able to enroll in new, affordable insurance, with coverage effective as early as January 1, 2014. In each state, women will be able to choose a high quality plan that covers important health services like maternity care, prescription drugs, and preventive health services. These resources provide women and their families with information about the new health coverage options available through a Health Insurance Marketplace in their state.
