2015 Senate Bill 63: Require insurers offer abortion coverage option with federal health care law
Introduced by Sen. Curtis Hertel, Jr. D-East Lansing on January 29, 2015
To require (rather than just allow) health insurance companies to offer an optional abortion coverage “rider” for policies sold in Michigan through the federal health care law’s “exchange.” Under “Initiated legislation” enacted in 2013, insurers are prohibited from including abortion coverage in policies sold through the exchange, but may sell a policy “rider” for this, for which individuals must pay themselves with no federal subsidy.   Official Text and Analysis.
