Current biennium cost increase - General Fund
Potential current biennium savings - General Fund
Fiscal Detail and Notes
Expanding Medicaid coverage for family planning services to individuals who have incomes less than or equal to 200% of the Federal Poverty Line (FPL) would have a cost to the State beginning if and when the Medicaid State Plan Amendment (SPA) is submitted and approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.  There is also the potential for increased family planning coverage to reduce costs from avoiding pregnancies and other services.  The timing and magnitude of these costs and potential savings cannot be determined at this time.
