Access to Care
All women should be asked about their health insurance coverage and their usual source of care. If they do not have health insurance, they should be referred to a welfare office or a private social service agency to determine their eligibility for public insurance. If they do not have a usual source of care, one should be established that will accept their insurance coverage or provide care free of charge or on a sliding fee basis.

All women should be asked about their economic status, and women who appear to be struggling financially should be referred to an agency that can check their eligibility for various types of financial assistance.
