Celebrating the Anniversary of the Affordable Care Act!
This week, California Planned Parenthood Education Fund celebrates the second anniversary of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) – the biggest advance in women’s health in a generation. Learn more about ACA and the key features of the law.
This groundbreaking legislation promotes the health of women by ensuring coverage of preventive care, such as lifesaving cancer screenings, birth control, and immunizations, with no co-pays; ends discriminatory practices against women, such as charging women higher premiums and denying coverage for ‘pre-existing conditions’; and expands coverage for young adults by allowing them to stay on their parents’ health plan until age 26; among many other benefits. Learn about how ACA will benefit Californians.
Anti-women’s health politicians want to take away these health care benefits, and repeal ACA. We can’t go backwards, and that’s why we are working to protect women’s health, and protect this important law.
