Medicaid is the primary source of family planning coverage in the United States, accounting for 75 percent of total public expenditures for family planning services.
Important aspects of Medicaid family planning coverage—including eligibility levels, benefits and payment policies—vary by state. In a new toolkit for states, Manatt Health reviews the policy options available to state Medicaid agencies seeking to ensure that Medicaid enrollees have access to the full range of family planning services and supplies. To enable state Medicaid agencies to evaluate the current family planning landscape and monitor progress toward improved access, this toolkit provides examples of high-value family planning data analyses that states can undertake to gather baseline and ongoing data about family planning access.
