Pritzker Administration Affirms State Coverage Of Abortions

Governor Pritzker’s administration is affirming Illinois‘ commitment to covering abortion care for all Medicaid customers in the state.  Illinois is one of only 16 states that go beyond federal Medicaid limits and use state funds to cover abortions for people enrolled in Medicaid.  The Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services covers both surgical and medical abortion services.  State law ensures access to abortion services even if Roe v. Wade is overturned.
