Health reform law will insure nearly all uninsured women by 2014
Date:5/10/2011

New York, NY, May 11, 2011The new health reform law will expand health insurance coverage to nearly all uninsured women and will make health care more affordable for millions of women through premium subsidies beginning in 2014 and new rules, some already in place, that will protect women from high costs, according to a Commonwealth Fund report released today.

This is up from 34 percent in 2001.

"This report shows how rapidly rising health care costs and lagging incomes are leaving increasing numbers of women unable to afford health insurance and health care and millions are struggling with medical bills and debt," said study co-author and Commonwealth Fund Vice President Sara Collins.

The report, Realizing Health Reform's Potential: Women At Risk, Why Increasing Numbers of Women Are Failing to Get the Health Care That they Need and How the Affordable Care Act Will Help, found that health care cost inc
