Insurance Coverage

Full Bill Text

HB 182 would ban insurance companies in the state from offering coverage for abortions.

The bill would prohibit health insurers and public employee benefit plans from covering abortions except when necessary to “reimplant the fertilized ovum” or to save a pregnant person’s life.

The bill would not include any exceptions for pregnancies that are the result of rape or incest.

No Separate Rider
Existing law authorizes individuals to purchase a rider or supplemental coverage for nontherapeutic abortions, if the covered individual pays a separate premium for it. This bill would have removed that exception. (Most states that ban insurance coverage permit individuals to purchase and pay for a separate abortion rider.)
