BCBSNC Women's Preventive Health Overview

On August 1, 2011, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) issued detailed guidelines for group health plans and health insurance issuers relating to coverage of preventive services under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). The guidelines specifically address preventive health services that must be offered to women at no additional cost.
These guidelines are effective for all non-grandfathered group health plans (underwritten and ASO) upon the group’s effective date/renewal on or after August 1, 2012
They are also effective for:
  • new, non-grandfathered individual health plans with effective dates of August 1, 2012 or later
  • existing, non-grandfathered individual plans, with effective dates prior to August 1, 2012, on January 1, 2013
Please see the FAQs document  for more information.
