Helping Your Patients Navigate Healthcare Reform
The National Women’s Law Center (NWLC) has published new resources to help patients navigate the Affordable Care Act (ACA), including state-specific guidance and FAQs on enrollment, a comprehensive resource guide on getting coverage for birth control, and guidance on what to do if an employer objects to providing birth control coverage. NWLC also operates the Pill4Us hotline (1-866-PILL4US or email@example.com) which assists women having difficulty accessing contraceptive coverage.
