AFFORDABLE CARE ACT: Want to know what Obamacare Means for You?
We are here for you. For nearly 100 years, we’ve been here to provide quality, affordable health care. And that’s not changing. While the health care law means millions of people will be getting insurance for the first time, Planned Parenthood will continue to provide quality care – whether or not you have insurance. So you can still come to us for the care you need, when you need it. Insurance plans have a “network,” or list of providers where you can use your insurance. Not every plan will include every provider, so check to see if your current provider is included in the plans you are considering. If you want to come to Planned Parenthood or have us as an option for care, look for a plan that includes us as a provider. To find out which plans include Planned Parenthood, use our plan finder tool at PlannedParenthoodHealthInsuranceFacts.org
