U.S. women may be the big winners when it comes to healthcare reform, not only those who are uninsured, but those with insurance, researchers say. The report by the Commonwealth Fund, a U.S. non-profit group that conducts independent research on health policy, estimated once fully implemented, the Affordable Care Act would cover nearly all women, reducing the uninsured rate among women from 20 percent to 8 percent. Twenty percent of U.S. women—18.7 million—ages 19-64 were uninsured in 2010, up from 15 percent—12.8 million—in 2000, the report found.
