We have good news for women who care about their health! You have new rights and protections in the Health Insurance Marketplace starting in 2014.
Here are 4 things for women to know about how the Health Insurance Marketplace helps women:
- You won’t be charged more for health insurance just because you’re a woman.
- You can’t be denied coverage or charged more due to pre-existing conditions, like cancer or being pregnant.
- You can choose from any primary care provider, OB-GYN, or pediatrician in your health plan’s network without a referral.
- You’ll get free preventive care like mammograms, well-woman visits, contraception, and more.
Are you looking forward to getting covered in 2014? Open enrollment begins on October 1, 2013 and coverage can start as soon as January 1.
