(By – Lisa Gillespie, Kaiser Health News)

The Affordable Care Act brought health insurance to 5.5 million women over the past two years, but many  women still tell of unmet health care needs that could pose risks for them or future pregnancies, a new report finds.

Researchers from the Urban Institute and the March of Dimes Foundation underscored the ACA’s long-term potential to improve health care for women in their child-bearing years, 18 to 44. The report was released Tuesday.
