International Women's Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. This day is about celebrating the power of women.  It is a day to acknowledge the endless contributions women bring to this world.  

We celebrate quality health insurance for women.  Preventative health care is a significant part of living a healthy life.  Women who are pregnant or women who are becoming pregnant should be taking advantage of preventative services to ensure a healthy pregnancy.

 

Preventative care includes:

Anemia screening on a routine basis

Breastfeeding comprehensive support and counseling from trained providers, and access to breastfeeding supplies, for pregnant and nursing women

Contraception: Food and Drug Administration-approved contraceptive methods, sterilization procedures, and patient education and counseling, as prescribed by a health care provider for women with reproductive capacity (not including abortifacient drugs). This does not apply to health plans sponsored by certain exempt “religious employers.” Learn more about contraceptive coverage.

Folic acid supplements for women who may become pregnant

Gestational diabetes screening for women 24 to 28 weeks pregnant and those at high risk of developing gestational diabetes

Gonorrhea screening for all women at higher risk

Hepatitis B screening for pregnant women at their first prenatal visit

Rh Incompatibility screening for all pregnant women and follow-up testing for women at higher risk

Syphilis screening

Expanded tobacco intervention and counseling for pregnant tobacco users

Urinary tract or other infection screening

 

Preventive care is critical to your overall health. This type of healthcare includes screenings, exams, tests, and immunizations that identify health problems early on so you can take action to keep them from becoming chronic conditions.
