The Department of Health & Human Services on Monday announced new preventive care and screening guidelines aimed at reducing expenses for women and children.

“Access to preventive care can help save countless lives and should be available without out-of-pocket costs, especially now during the COVID-19 pandemic,” HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra said. “These updated guidelines help ensure that we’re providing critical services to keep families healthy, based on the latest science and data available. The Biden-Harris Administration will continue to build on the Affordable Care Act to make preventive care available to as many Americans as possible nationwide.”
