We plan to run an updated version of this table once a year, similar to the annual immunization schedules. In the online PDF, note that there are links in the main table's risk factors to mini-tables showing what those risk factors are.

Starting in , private insurance plans no longer will be able to deny coverage to people based on pre-existing conditions.
Further, in , the practice of charging women higher premiums in the individual insurance market, also known as gender-rating, will be prohibited. Without this prohibition, women have sometimes been charged 10 percent to 50 percent higher premiums than men. Preventive Services. In , the ACA prohibited copayments or coinsurance for specified preventive services, such as colonoscopies and influenza immunizations.
Most relevant to women are the services that new health plans now must cover, including annual well-woman visits; a fuller range of contraceptive education, counseling, methods and services; services for pregnant women, including screening for gestational diabetes and breast-feeding counseling and equipment; improved screening for cervical cancer; counseling for sexually transmitted infections and counseling and screening for HIV; and domestic violence screening and counseling.

Coverage under the Medicaid expansion also must be equivalent to essential health benefits. States will continue to play an important role in determining what additional health insurance benefits must be covered in their states, including health plans that will be sold in the insurance exchanges. As the health care system expands, legislators are exploring a variety of options to restructure payment systems from the current fee-for-service model to models that help contain costs and focus services on preventing disease and maintaining health.
The models discussed below are based on finding efficiencies in patient-centered care. More efficient health care also should lead to better health care, as patients receive assistance to manage complex medical conditions and avoid unnecessary costs, such as preventable emergency room visits.
Value-Based Insurance Design. This strategy designs health benefit plans to rely on a system of incentives and disincentives to promote prevention, maintain health and control costs. Public and private plans have incorporated this strategy, with some success, but reliable data on effectiveness are limited. Research indicates that the medical home model —which focuses on efficiency—helps to improve health care and control costs. Nearly every state has restructured provider payments to promote medical homes for at least some Medicaid beneficiaries. States also are using the model in pilot programs and state employee health plans.
A similar model, called a Health Home , is a Medicaid option specifically for patients who have several chronic conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease or arthritis; who have one condition and are at risk for a second; or have a serious, persistent mental health condition.
