Support Medicaid Funding of Abortion Services
The cost of abortion places financial hurdles in front of patient care – those who can afford to pay or have insurance that covers abortion can receive care, while those who can’t afford the cost of care either can’t receive it or are forced to find other avenues.
That’s why Medicaid, state, and private insurance funding of abortion care is one of our goals during the 2023 legislative session. Funding abortion care through Medicaid, state, and private insurance will help break down socioeconomic barriers and address racial disparities in reproductive health.
Delaware lawmakers must work to require that all insurance covers abortion and does not add out-of-pocket expenses. Even people with health insurance may not be able to shoulder the additional cost of a medical procedure, meaning they may have to shift critical funds for rent, food, childcare, transportation, or other medical expenses.
Right now, we have the opportunity to enhance abortion protection and expand access to abortion services and other reproductive healthcare policies. Can we count on you to become a part of the rising tide of people in Delaware standing up for abortion rights by supporting Medicaid funding of abortion services?
