MS. Miller called for support of measures providing complete health coverage for pregnancies, ANITA MILLER ^Tells Bias Findings --AP Wirephoto extended disability and unemployment benefits for working women, and elimination of any reference to sex in establishing coverage rates. The outlined'recommen- dations were part of a six- month study prepared by the commission on the type of insurance coverage women receive in California. ; "Health insurance accounts for two^hirds of the insurance industry," .. Ms. Miller said. "But the evidence clearly demonstrates that that is the area in which women are most d i s c r i m i n a t e d against." She charged the commission study showed that 90 per cent of all health services required by women were "fertility related" but t h a t the industry has labeled pregnancies as a "voluntary and an intentional condition" ineligible for health benefits. "It is naive to assume that a condition so very important to the family should be so carelessly regarded." she said. She said the benefits often fell far short of physician and hospital costs during pregnancies. Ms. Miller added that increased health insurance would only cost 62 cents a m o n t h for women em- ployes and $4 a month if included on the husband's policy.
