Maryland

Low-Income Women's Access to Family Planning

Maryland provides increased access to reproductive-health-care services through a Section 1115 waiver.  As part of this waiver, the state is allowed to cover family-planning services for women under 51 years of age whose family income is at or below 200 percent of the poverty level.  Additionally, enrollees must be (1) U.S. citizens or persons who meet Medicaid citizenship requirements and (2) Maryland residents.

Beneficiaries of family-planning coverage available through the waiver are not required to pay premiums or co-payments for covered services.  Covered services include office visits; laboratory tests; contraceptive methods and devices, including emergency contraception; and voluntary sterilization.

The waiver will expire on December 31, 2013.
