ABSTRACT
The article highlights how family planning waivers have significantly expanded the access of low-income women in 28 U.S. states to reproductive health services in 2011. These waivers oblige the Federal government to shoulder 90% of the costs of family planning services incurred by eligible Medicaid beneficiaries. Starting January 1, 2013, the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama mandates health insurance plans to provide coverage for birth control services, with no additional copays.
