Wyoming

Low-Income Women's Access to Family Planning

Wyoming 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 133 percent of the federal poverty level, who are 60 days postpartum and losing Medicaid coverage and who are not otherwise eligible for the state's health-care programs or had a medical procedure to prevent pregnancy.  

Beneficiaries of family-planning coverage available through the waiver are not required to pay premiums or co-payments for covered services.  Covered services include: education about reproductive health, abstinence, and methods of birth control; initial physical exam including a Pap smear and testing for STIs; annual family-planning follow-up visits; laboratory visits for family planning, education, and counseling; contraceptive management including prescriptions, devices and supplies insertion, or contraceptive injectables; removal of contraceptive devices; and sterilization and related laboratory services.

The waiver will expire Sept. 30, 2014.
