HB 2800 outlines the priority for distribution of public funds for family planning services and specifies that the state or any political subdivision may not contract with any person or facility that performs nonfederally qualified abortions.

The bill defines “nonfederally qualified abortions” to mean an abortion that does not meet the requirements for federal reimbursement under Title XIX of the Social Security Act.”

The bill specifies that the expenditure of public funds for family planning services must be distributed in the following order:

  • To health care facilities that are owned or operated by this state or any political subdivision of this state.
  • To hospitals and federally qualified health centers.
  • To rural health clinics.
  • To health care providers whose primary area of practice is the provision of primary health services.

This bill disqualifies Planned Parenthood from state Medicaid funds.
