I have wonderful news for anyone who cares about women, families, or the cost of health care in this country.

Last week, the Obama administration announced historic new guidelines that ensure that women can receive a wide range of preventative health services at no additional cost.

That means that, by August of next year, HIV screenings, contraception, breastfeeding support, domestic violence screening, and other services must be available under all new insurance plans -- without a co-payment or deductible -- under the Affordable Care Act.

And ultimately, fewer women will have to make a choice between their physical and financial health.

This is a victory for all of us who fought for health reform and care about women's issues. Today, it's important we get the word out to others who may not have heard this news.
