Low-Income Women's Access to Family Planning

Arkansas provides increased access to reproductive-health-care services through a Section 1115 family-planning waiver.  The waiver allows the state to cover family-planning services for all women of childbearing age with incomes at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty level, who are not otherwise eligible for state and federal health-care programs.  

Beneficiaries of family-planning coverage available through the waiver are not required to pay premiums or co-payments for covered services.  Covered services include: contraceptive education and counseling; contraceptives (includes FDA-approved over-the-counter medications, injectables, and implants); voluntary sterilization; office visits, examinations in conjunction with a family-planning encounter; and laboratory and radiology procedures associated with a family-planning encounter.

The waiver will expire on Dec. 31, 2013
