I got this from the National Women's Law Center and think it is timely and should be acted upon by men and women alike in the US: Though the House bill completely eliminates the harmful practice of gender rating, in which insurance companies charge women higher premiums, the Senate bill only eliminates gender rating for companies with less than 100 employees. That means that larger employers with predominantly female workforces, like child care providers, visiting nurse associations and even some smaller school districts will continue to be charged higher premiums simply because of the demographics of their workforce. How much more? One employer with a predominantly female workforce estimated that her business annual premiums were $2,000 a year more! As members of Congress are working to merge the two health reform bills into one final bill, we need to make sure that they are doing whats right for all women. Please take a moment to contact your Members of Congress to tell them that health care reform must end gender rating for ALL women.
