No. 5: Maternity and newborn care
This was one of the areas once largely ignored by individual health insurance. Before Obamacare, just 12 percent of individual market plans offered maternity coverage, according to the National Women's Law Center. Now, prenatal care, childbirth and newborn care must all be included. If you're already expecting when you sign up for insurance, you can't be denied coverage for having a "pre-existing condition" (namely, pregnancy).
