Ladies, Here's Why You Should Be Psyched About Obamacare

Did you know that before Obamacare, women paid nearly 70% more than men for out-of-pocket medical costs? Planned Parenthood created this graphic about that fact and other mind-boggling statistics explaining why women in particular benefit from the Affordable Care Act:

Some quick highlights:

  • Before the ACA, 1 in 5 women ages 15 to 44 were uninsured
  • Now almost 13 million uninsured women in that age range will be able to get health insurance
  • There are now no copays for preventative care, if you have Medicaid or private insurance
  • Insurers can’t charge women more than men anymore
