Actions Taken

Women’s Preventive Services Recommended by IOM to be Covered Under Affordable Care Act

The passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010 marked a profound shift away from reactive care and toward a system focused on prevention, including a new provision that ensures preventive health services will be covered with no out-of-pocket costs. On August 1, 2011, less than two weeks after the release of Clinical Preventive Services for Women: Closing the Gaps, HHS adopted the IOM’s recommendations outlining which services for women should be included.
