The Health Resources and Services Administration today released updated women’s preventive services guidelines under the Affordable Care Act, which determine which women’s preventive services non-grandfathered private health plans must cover without cost-sharing. According to the Department of Health and Human Services, the updated guidelines will newly require these plans to cover double electric breast pumps without a co-pay or deductible.
