CT exchange plans violating ACA women’s coverage protections
new report by the National Women’s Law Center analyzed benefits and offerings of ACA-required services women need among marketplace plans in fifteen states. Violations in CT included breastfeeding supports and supplies, essential health benefits, and coverage for birth control. Other state violations also included genetic testing, prescription coverage, pre-existing condition coverage, maternity and preventative services. The Center working with local CT advocates were able to encourage state regulators to issue a bulletin to all insurers outlining legal requirements for coverage of birth control services.
