At NCJW, we believe that every single person’s health is paramount. Ensuring that all have access to the resources necessary to make their own decisions about their health, families, and futures is critical to achieving our goal of reproductive justice. And thanks to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), accessible, high-quality, comprehensive insurance covering a wide range of reproductive health services is now within reach for millions of Americans.
From November 1 to December 15, you can compare and purchase health care plans on the insurance marketplace that will start on January 1, 2021. Because the ACA is still the law of the land, your plan will cover 10 categories of essential health benefits at no cost to you, including:
- Preventive and wellness services, including annual physicals and life-saving screenings for breast and cervical cancers;
- Birth control;
- Mental health services;
- Pregnancy and newborn care; and
- Mental health services.
We all have an obligation to care for our health and to help others do the same. Ready to enroll? Head over to healthcare.gov and get covered today!
