The Affordable Care Act Will Help Women With Breast Cancer
The Affordable Care Act could have a significant impact on reducing breast cancer across the country.
Matt Schafer of the American Cancer Society says more women will be able to access affordable health care because insurers will not be able to reject those with pre-existing conditions, like breast cancer.
