Why this matters
Abortion is a safe, legal health procedure that many women will choose at some point in life. California is one of only six states which require insurance plans to cover this care, but unfortunately many birthing people still face high cost-sharing burdens. Eliminating financial barriers is critical to ensuring that all birthing people, regardless of income, can access the care they need in a timely manner.
What our bill does
SB 245 removes co-payments and deductibles, and others costs charged to patients seeking abortions with private insurance.
