This Bill Sounds Very Promising...

A Bill Regarding Preventive Health Care for Women:

Check out the list of screenings this included here:

Under Ms. Mikulski’s proposal, a federal agency, the Health Resources and Services Administration, would develop “comprehensive guidelines” recommending preventive care and screenings for women, and insurers would have to cover the services without any cost-sharing.

Ms. Mikulski said the services would include screenings for breast, cervical, ovarian and lung cancer, heart disease and diabetes, as well as postpartum depression and domestic violence.

Some of you know that postpartum depression is an issue that's near and dear to me too, and when I saw them both listed AS WELL as screenings for these other major diseases that women face, I was very excited.
