Abortion services are explicitly excluded from the ten essential benefits offered on all non-grandfathered health plans under the ACA, as are abortion inducing drugs.
Other drugs that some feel cross the line (like IUDs) are mandated by the ACA, but are more common to be exempted from select plans. Under federal law, no plan is required to cover abortion. Learn more from KFF.org.
Additionally, as required by the Affordable Care Act, MSP insurers in each State must offer at least one plan that does not include elective abortion services. In 2015, most MSP insurers do not offer an MSP option that covers elective abortion. In many of these States, insurers offering non-MSP choices on the Health Insurance Marketplace are offering plans that cover elective abortions.
