Teen births in the U.S. are declining, still, in 2012, more than 86,000 teens ages 15 to 17 gave birth.
Giving birth during the teen years has been linked to increased medical risks and emotional, social, and financial costs to the mother and her child.
We all need to help prevent teen pregnancy.
Health care providers, encourage teens to delay sexual activity and use effective birth control if they are sexually active; and provide confidential, culturally appropriate services for teens.
Parents, talk with your child about how and when to say “no” to sex; know where teens are and what they’re doing, especially after school; and be aware of their use of social media.
Teens, share the responsibility for preventing pregnancy with your partner, resist peer pressure to have sex, talk openly about sexual health with your parents and other adults you trust, and see a health care provider to learn about the most effective birth control methods.
The Marketplace is a new way to find quality health insurance.
Women can compare different plans based on price, benefits, quality, and other features that will help them make informed decisions about their health and the health of their families.
You can choose the combination of price and benefits that fits your budget and meets your needs.
Essential health benefits are minimum requirements for all Marketplace plans.
Benefits include, but are not limited to, preventive and wellness services, pediatric services, emergency services, and hospitalization, including surgery.
Marketplace health plans must also cover preventive services for women without charging a copayment or coinsurance.
These include bone density tests to screen for osteoporosis, mammograms, pap tests, HIV and STD screening and counseling, contraception, and well-woman visits, as well as other services that specifically address the health needs of women.
With one Marketplace application, you can choose and compare health plans, enroll in health coverage, and learn about Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program that covers families with limited incomes.
If you already have insurance, you may be able to lower your costs.
