Preventive Services for Women

This infographic highlights the missed opportunities for preventive counseling on risk factors and reveals that a large proportion of women are unaware that the ACA requires private plans to cover many preventive services without cost sharing. It also shows how lack of insurance impacts rates of mammograms and other screening tests for women and how costs are a barrier that cause some women to postpone services or skip a recommended test or treatment. The May 2014 data visualization is part of a series offered by the Kaiser Family Foundation and JAMA.
