Trump-Pence Administration Issues Proposed Rule Designed to Eliminate Insurance Coverage of Abortion in the ACA Marketplaces
From the National Women's Law Center
All health insurance plans should cover all basic health services for women, including birth control, abortion, pre-natal care, childbirth and post-partum care. Yet, merely a day after voters made clear that health care is a top priority, the Department of Health and Human Services released a Proposed Rule designed to take abortion coverage away from individuals who get their insurance through the ACA marketplace.
The Proposed Rule is designed to eliminate coverage of abortion altogether.
The Trump-Pence Administration’s Proposed Rule is targeting states where abortion coverage is available in the marketplaces.
The Proposed Rule would endanger women’s health, economic security, and future wellbeing.
