Issue Background

Maternity benefits could disappear

On February 16th, the nominee to run the government agency that oversees most health insurance said she didn't think all insurance plans should have to cover pregnancy care.

This means we could be headed back to the days when women were regularly denied coverage for pregnancy and struggled to afford prenatal care and important tests.  For the sake of our babies, we can't afford to let this happen. 

Join the movement to protect maternity benefits!  Here's how you can help:

  • SIGN the March of Dimes petition supporting coverage for maternitycare
  • SHARE the petition on social media like Facebook and Twitter
  • CALL your Senators to let them know you disagree with Seema Verma's position onmaternity benefits (just call the Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121, tell them your state and they will connect you)

Thank you for being the voice for moms and babies.  Together, we will give every baby a fighting chance.
