Transcript EQUAL RIGHTS AMENDMENT The Equal Rights Amendment should be ratified. ¥# HEALTH Federal legislation should establish a national health security program. Present Federal employees' health insurance policies and any future national health security program should cover women as individuals. Health insurance benefits should include: • Preventive health service. • Comprehensive family planning services. • Reproductive health care. • General medical care. • Home and health support services. • Comprehensive mental health services. States should license and recognize qualified mid- wives and nurse practitioners as independent health specialists and State and Federal laws should require health insurance providers to directly reimburse these health specialists. States should enact a patient's bill of rights which includes enforceable provisions for informed consent and access to and patient ownership of medical records. Federal legislation should be enacted to expand the authority of the Food and Drug Administration to: • Require testing of all drugs, devices and cosmetics by independent sources other than the manufacturers. • Extend test periods beyond the present grossly inadequate one year or 18 months. • Have immediate recall of hazardous, unsafe or ineffective drugs, devices and cosmetics. 14 • Require a patient information package insert with every drug and device marketed.
