Women’s health is “the branch of medicine that focuses on the treatment and diagnosis of diseases and conditions that affect a woman’s physical and emotional well-being.”
According to broad definitions of the term, women’s health includes far more than just reproductive health — it encompasses:
- Female-specific conditions (e.g., menopause)
- General health conditions that affect women differently than men (e.g., cardiovascular disease)
- General health conditions that affect women disproportionately (e.g., autoimmune disease)
- General health conditions that tend to incur gender bias during care delivery (e.g., mental health)
Women’s health is not a niche corner of healthcare but rather the foundation for a healthier world. According to McKinsey, “Because women are often caretakers, better outcomes in women’s health also have cascading benefits for groups such as children and the elderly. Women’s health, in other words, contributes in a significant way to stronger, healthier societies.”
Reflective of this fact is the booming femtech market, which refers to products and services that use technology to support women’s health. Funding for femtech reached $2.5 billion in 2021 — and femtech startups continue cropping up to address gaps and inequities in women’s health, and to make women’s health more widely accessible.
At Sana, we believe it is important for women to have access to healthcare providers who treat women’s health as a top priority. Women deserve high-quality, differentiated care as they face diverse health challenges throughout their lives.
With Sana, you have $0 and low-cost options specifically designed for women’s health.
Go to any women’s health specialist you choose — for a predictable copay.
On most insurance plans, a fixed provider network limits the specialists you can see — but not on Sana. Our plans are all-access, which means we will add any provider you choose to our network, and you’ll never have to worry about paying out-of-network fees. Our predictable $50 copay for specialist visits takes the guesswork out of budgeting for your care.
If you don’t already have preferred specialists you’d like added, we can recommend some of the high-quality providers we already have in our network. For instance, we partner with Kindbody, a nationwide network of clinics providing in-person fertility care and inclusive family-building care, such as surrogacy and adoption support.
