Michigan Approves Law Restricting Abortion Insurance Coverage

JONG.ARCEGA-34-M“After a state-wide ballot-initiative drive from pro-life groups, the Michigan state legislature has passed legislation that would exclude abortion from being offered as a covered benefit in public and private health-insurance plans. The senate voted 27 to 11 in favor of the bill and the House 62 to 47, both largely on party lines. Republican governor Rick Snyder had previously vetoed a similar bill last December.

Michigan is now the 24th state to ban abortion coverage in standard health insurance provided via the exchanges and the ninth state to prohibit abortion coverage in both public and private insurance plans. Consumers will still be able to purchase a separate rider for abortion coverage; however, this eliminates the potential use of taxpayer funded subsidies to buy insurance plans that cover abortion.”
