SB 272 would have prohibited a qualified health plan offered through an exchange established by the state from including elective abortion coverage.

The bill defines “elective abortion” to be an abortion for any other reason other than to prevent the death of the mother provided that an abortion is not one to prevent the death of the mother based on a claim that or diagnosis that she will engage in conduct that will result in her death.

The bill would have authorized individuals to purchase supplemental coverage for elective abortions, but would have required a separate premium to be paid for it.

STATUS

Companion bill to HB 3081.

Identical to HB 4489 and HB 4311.
