Click Your State, Check Your Coverage
The 2017 Obamacare Open Enrollment Period spans November 1, 2016 through January 31, 2017. During this time Americans will be able to sign up for Obamacare plans and many will receive taxpayer-funded subsidies to help pay for these plans. Do you know if the 2017 plans cover abortion on demand? Before you purchase your 2017 coverage, be sure to check your state to see which plans cover abortion on demand.
The Government Accountability Office (GAO) found that 1,036 of Obamacare plans sold in 2014 included abortion on demand. Unfortunately, it took many months and a government watchdog report to finally identify the abortion-covering plans for 2014.
For 2017 coverage, it was easier to find information about whether an Obamacare plan included abortion on demand due to new transparency requirements. However, what is still not transparent is that individuals purchasing plans that include abortion are required to pay a monthlyhidden abortion surcharge, the amount which remains unknown for each abortion-covering plan. Through the surcharge, a portion of each individual’s insurance premium goes into a separate fund used to pay for abortion on demand.

Note: “Elective abortion” is used interchangeably throughout the website with “abortion on demand” or abortions for reasons other than rape, incest, or life of the mother. Because the language used by each insurance company to describe their abortion coverage policies varies, our research team did our best to clarify the abortion coverage and list plans accordingly.
