Low-Income Women's Access to Family Planning

Louisiana 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 women ages 19 to 44 with incomes at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty level, who are not otherwise eligible for federal or state health-care programs.  

Covered services include: all services currently identified in the Medicaid program as family-planning services for women, including sterilization; four visits per calendar year for services rendered by a physician, physician assistant, nurse practitioner or nurse; all-FDA-approved family-planning medications, devices, methods or supplies.  

The waiver expires on March 30, 2014.
