‘Pro-life Americans’ may qualify for new exemption from health insurance
Thanks to some newly expanded exemptions to the Affordable Care Act (also known as ObamaCare), pro-life individuals who would otherwise be forced to accept an insurance plan from the marketplace that includes abortion coverage may now have another option. According to the Associated Press, “expanded hardship exemptions will go into effect immediately. People who object to abortion can get an exemption if all available health plans in their area cover the procedure.”
The AP continues:
Medicare and Medicaid administrator Seema Verma said the exemption for abortion objectors provides “pro-life Americans” with relief if they are living in an area where the only available ACA plan covers abortion. About half the states already forbid ACA plans from covering abortion, so it’s also uncertain how many consumers would qualify for the new exemption.
