This bill would ensure coverage of abortion for people enrolled in public insurance plans (including Medicaid, Indian Health Service, and the Veteran’s Administration) and their dependents. It would also protect against federal interference with private health insurance companies that choose to offer coverage for abortion care.
A year after the overturning of Roe, 14 states have no clinics offering abortion care. In states where abortion remains legal, a complex web of restrictions that limit access.
Twelve states restrict the coverage of abortion in private insurance plans and 33 states and D.C. do not cover abortion in their Medicaid programs, with extremely limited exceptions.
Now, more than ever, Congress must take action to expand coverage and access to abortion care—not pass additional bans or restrictions. Please contact your members of Congress today. Every person, no matter where they live or how much money they make, deserves to be able to access the health care they need.
