Raising the Status of Wisconsin Women's Health
Wisconsin's women's health policy leader
Wisconsin Women Have A Lot to Celebrate on the 3rd Anniversary of the Affordable Care Act
Since the passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in March of 2010, we have recognized the many ways Wisconsin women are and can continue to win with meaningful health care reform.  More than ever, women need comprehensive access to affordable and quality care for themselves and their families.  The Wisconsin Alliance for Women's Health remains steadfast in our efforts to raise awareness of and appreciation for this unprecedented opportunity to meet the health and economic security needs of Wisconsin of residents.

Already Wisconsin women are benefiting from such ACA provisions as preventive services available without co-pays and deductibles, and allowing dependent children to stay on their family policy until their 26th birthday.  Today children cannot be denied insurance due to a pre-existing condition and this will be applied to everyone as of January 2014. No longer will insurance companies be able to use gender as a pre-existing condition and either deny coverage to women or charge them more than men.
