Ensuring Health Care Access

As an essential community health care provider, Womens Choice believes that any health care reform proposal must ensure access to quality, affordable care that includes access to the full range of reproductive health services.

Victory! Congress passed the health care reform bill.

What does it mean for you?

  • It extends health care coverage to tens of millions of women and families.
  • It guarantees access to affordable, lifesaving screenings for breast and cervical cancer.
  • It protects women against gender discrimination by private insurers.
  • It ends the practice of dropping coverage because of pre-existing conditions.
  • It significantly increases insurance coverage of reproductive health care, including family planning.

It's a huge victory for women's health, but our work isn't over yet.

While we celebrate the passage of health care reform, rest assured we're going to keep working to fix the damage caused by the Nelson amendment. If left intact, the Nelson amendment would be the most severe restriction on private health insurance coverage for abortion in 35 years.
