Health-care law improves insurance coverage for pregnant women and new mothers

Washington Post: “Some private insurers, for example, treat pregnancy as a preexisting condition and charge pregnant women higher premiums, or refuse to cover costs associated with childbirth. Low-income women can get Medicaid coverage while they’re pregnant, but they generally lose it 60 days after giving birth unless they’re very poor.  The health-care overhaul greatly improves this situation.”
