Birth Control Coverage: FAQ
Do health insurance plans have to pay for "abortion pills"?
Who is now covered under Medicaid expansion?
The Affordable Care Act creates new opportunities for states to expand their Medicaid programs to cover individuals and families with incomes up to 138 percent of the federal poverty level. With this expansion, many more women may be eligible to get their birth control paid for by Medicaid. Go to Healthcare.gov's Medicaid expansion information to see if your state has expanded coverage. Also, some states have chosen a separate option created under the Affordable Care Act to provide family planning services and supplies to certain individuals; you can contact your state Medicaid agency to find out if you are eligible for coverage under this option.
