Sibelius on the Impact of Obamacare for Women

Kathleen Sibelius, Secretary of Health and Human Services, has posted an entry on the White House blog, entitled "How the Affordable Care Act Improves the Lives of American Women."  Excerpt:

Important preventive services are now available to women at no additional cost.  These include an annual well woman visit, screening for breast, cervical, and colorectal cancer; certain contraceptive methods; smoking-cessation treatment and services; breastfeeding support and equipment; screening and counseling for interpersonal and domestic violence; immunizations; and many more.  Thanks to the health care law, more than 47 million women have guaranteed access to preventive services without cost-sharing.
