Low-Income Women's Access to Family Planning
Arizona provides increased access to reproductive-health-care services through a Section 1115 waiver. The waiver allows the state to cover family-planning services for 24 months for women with incomes at or below 133 percent of the federal poverty level, who lose family-planning coverage after 60 days postpartum and who are not otherwise eligible for state and federal health-care programs.
The waiver will expire on Sept. 30, 2016.
