Federal Exchange Plans Still Obscure Abortion Information

On December 11, 2013, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, in response to a question from Rep. John Shimkus (R-IL), testified on Capitol Hill that abortion coverage information in insurance plans is “available for every customer,” and that “it is on the website.”  After the testimony the Charlotte Lozier Institute undertook to research a variety of plan documents for health insurance plans on the federal exchange to discern which ones do and do not cover abortion.  Here is a list of the Summary of Benefits and Coverage documents CLI has gathered from a survey of states whose marketplaces are operated by the federal government.  Most do not reveal any information on whether the plan covers abortion.

 

These documents were accessed on December 16, 2013 and saved.  For more information, please see our full article here.
