President Obama’s Full Remarks in Denver, Colorado – with Sandra Fluke Introduction
President Obama held a grassroots event in Denver, Colorado where he highlighted how health reform has helped women get access to the care they need.

-Over 22,100 Colorado women who find themselves in the Medicare doughnut hole coverage gap will have received a discount on their prescription drugs, saving them an average of $577 each.
-On August 1, insurance companies began to cover eight new women’s health services — including contraception, well-woman visits, breastfeeding support, and more.
