ABSTRACT
The article deals with a "New York Times" report which revealed that U.S. women generally pay much more than men for identical individual health insurance policies. Women ages 25 to 29 in Dallas or Houston, Texas pay 39 percent more than men of the same age for the Texas Health Insurance Risk Pool, and a 35-year-old woman in Nebraska pays 32 percent more than a man of the same age for coverage under the state insurance pool. It also found that women between ages 19 and 55 often have higher healthcare expenses, especially during their childbearing years.
