In 2010 EmblemHealth rolled out the first of several enhancements required by the federal health care reform law (the Affordable Care Act or ACA) by eliminating cost-sharing for many
in-network preventive services. Today, we're poised and ready to comply with the latest health reform mandate that eliminates cost-sharing for additional in-network preventive services.
According to industry research, this second round of preventive services benefits enhancements required by the Affordable Care Act is especially significant for women, since more mothers and daughters will be able to receive life-saving screenings such as pap smears, mammograms and others for conditions and diseases like osteoporosis.
*For calendar-year group health plans, compliance is required beginning January 1, 2013.
