Passage of the historic health care reform law is a huge step forward for women.
It is a victory for every woman who has been unable to afford health coverage. It is a victory for every woman who has been overcharged because of her gender or denied coverage because of age or health status. It is a victory for every woman who has struggled to get the prenatal, maternity and preventive care she needs. And it is a victory for patients and caregivers who struggle to navigate a fragmented, uncoordinated system.
But a lot more work lies ahead. When President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law, our health care system was opened up for renovation. And like any remodeling job, we’ve got a long way to go before the final product will be ready for a ribbon cutting ceremony — when our health care system finally delivers the quality, coordinated, and comprehensive health care that women and families deserve.
