An Early Look at the Affordable Care Act and Women
On Thursday, May 15 at 9:30 a.m. ET, the Kaiser Family Foundation will host a public briefing to release a new report based on the Foundation’s most recent comprehensive survey on women’s health. This report provides new findings that will be critical to understanding women’s early experiences with the coverage changes that are part of the Affordable Care Act, including the latest information on:
- Private and public insurance coverage rates for women
- Use of preventive services for women covered as a result of the ACA
- Coverage and use of contraceptives and other reproductive health services for women
- The impact of out of pocket costs, medical bills, and other barriers on women’s access to care
The key findings from the new survey will be presented by Usha Ranji, the Foundation’s Associate Director for Women’s Health Policy, which will be followed by a panel discussion on the ACA and challenges in improving women’s health and access to care that will be moderated by Alina Salganicoff, Ph.D, Kaiser Family Foundation Vice President and Director of Women’s Health Policy.
