Senator Boxer: Increasing Access to Women's Health Services   

Wednesday, August 10, 2011  

Dear Friend:

Thanks to health care reform, women will have access to a wide range of free preventive health care services under guidelines recently announced by the Department of Health and Human Services.

Beginning in August 2012, new health insurance plans will be required to cover women’s preventive services such as contraceptives, annual well-woman checkups, and domestic violence screenings without charging a co-pay or deductible.
