Starting August 1st, and for the first time ever, women will have access to potentially life-saving preventive care free of charge.� Thanks to the health care law, services including well-woman visits, gestational diabetes screening, breastfeeding support and supplies, contraception, domestic violence screening, and more will be covered without cost sharing in new health plans starting August 2012 � giving women more control over their own health.
To talk about these new benefits becoming available for women, we are teaming up with WebMD to take your questions on what this means for women and their families. Please join HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Annic Jobin, WebMD�s Director of News and Partnerships, for a live online discussion on Wednesday, August 1st at 1:30pm EST.
You can watch the conversation live at www.healthcare.gov/live, and submit questions on Facebook at www.facebook.com/healthcaregov or on Twitter using the hashtag #womenshealth. You can also join the conversation here on WebMD.
