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.
