Millions of women will benefit from health reform, study says

Posted:

(KWWL) -- A new report suggests 30 million women will benefit from the health reform law.

The report is from the commonwealth fund, a foundation that supports research on the healthcare system.

The commonwealth analysis indicates the law will stabilize and reverse women's health costs by subsidizing health insurance for up to 15 million women who are uninsured.

Researchers also estimate an additional 14.5 million under-insured women will get a boost in their coverage.

According to the report, provisions in the law will require new plans to cover maternity and newborn care.
