The New York Times ran an interesting story this week about disparities in health insurance costs. A new report issued by the National Women’s Law Center, Nowhere to Turn: How the Individual Health Insurance Market Fails Women, reveals that women’s health insurance policies cost hundreds of dollars more per year than men’s. Women even pay more than men for health insurance that does not cover maternity care. In fact, the gap is in the cost of health insurance for individual insurance policies that provide identical care. The full report is available here.
