House Bill 12 | FAMILY PLANNING SERVICES AMENDMENTS, sponsored by Representative Raymond Ward.
Representative Ward introduced a bill for the 2018 Utah State Legislative Session. If passed, this bill would require Medicaid to cover contraceptive services for individuals who earn an income below 95% of the federal poverty level. The Family Planning Services Amendments could help thousands of Utahans access contraceptive methods that they cannot currently afford on a self-pay basis. The bill would cover the costs of all reversible methods of contraception including birth control pills, contraceptive injections and rings and intrauterine devices (IUDs) and contraceptive implants.
