Update: Californian Seeking 2706 Midwifery Coverage


John Weeks first reported on Stephanie Taylor’s 2706-based petition for HuffPo

Stephanie Taylor, whose petition to win insurance coverage for midwife services under the Affordable Care Act Sect. 2706 received media attention from Kaiser Health News, last week which reported on Stephanie’s experience in California. She is expecting her first child in April. The online petition she began last month has passed 2,000 signatures at change.org.

Stephanie was inspired to insist on midwifery service as a right under Sec. 2706 after reading John Weeks’ summary of the law and its inevitable collisions in his Huffington Post column of last August.
