Live Conversation on Birth Control and the #ACA
The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy and the UnitedStatesofWomen.org have a live forum underway in Miami which can be accessed on Facebook Live
Millions of women currently obtain their contraception coverage through the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and millions more are eligible to access that benefit. As the deadline for enrolling in ACA approaches, what role does accessing affordable health care coverage play in birth control? What direct benefits are linked with ACA and how has—and will—it provide a wide array of benefits to women, men, children, and society?
It is estimated that 55 million women have benefited from ACA coverage of preventive services, which includes all FDA-approved methods of contraception without co-pays or deductibles. Despite these impressive coverage gains, any cuts in funding to the nation’s network of safety-net clinics, as well as any threatened rollback of health coverage, could result in dramatic declines in access to effective and affordable contraception.
Join us, in partnership with the United State of Women at Miami Dade College, for a conversation highlighting the interections of birth control and access to afforable health care.
