Women Benefit from New Health Care Laws

With so many changes happening under Obama's Administration it is hard to keep up, let alone figure out how this may pertain to you.

Here are the details of how moms and women in general across the country may benefit from these new health care changes.

Preventive Health Care

Routine exams such as annual pap smears, mammograms, and immunizations will be offered to women for no additional costs.

Access To Your Doctor Without Referrals

Insurance companies will no longer make it necessary for you to receive a referral to see a doctor that is not your primary care physician. Insurance companies will no longer be able to limit the amount of visits to the doctor or limit the time between each visit.

Nursing Moms Get Privacy

With the passing of this new law, breastfeeding moms will finally get privacy. Employers with more than 50 employees will be required to provide a private area, other than a restroom, for breastfeeding mothers to pump (for their children up to one years old).
