GA - Female legislators expand health insurance coverage
Female legislators expand health insurance coverage | ajc.com: "Republican and Democratic women joined Tuesday to help water down a bill that would have allowed companies to offer health insurance without mandated coverage for such things as mastectomy treatment, testing for chlamydia and contraceptives."
"House members added back much of the coverage that the Senate bill slashed from the list of mandated benefits after lengthy behind-the-scenes debate and negotiations involving health advocates and many of the leading women of the chamber."
