Section 2713 of the Public Health Service Act (the “Act’), as added by the Affordable Care Act (“ACA”), requires group health plans and health insurance issuers that are not grandfathered health plans to provide a wide array of preventive care items and services with no cost-sharing. This means that no deductibles, copays, coinsurance, or other cost-sharing measures otherwise imposed on plan participants can be imposed for specified in-network preventive care services.
As of today, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force released a final recommendation statement on screening for preeclampsia. The Task Force recommends screening for preeclampsia in pregnant women with blood pressure measurements throughout pregnancy.
