When Medicaid was enacted in 1965, it did not include family planning services and supplies among covered services. However, Congress amended the Act in 1972 to improve the availability of family planning services. First, Congress required States to cover “family planning services and supplies furnished (directly or under arrangements with others) to individuals of child-bearing age (including minors who can be considered to be sexually active) who are eligible under the State [Medicaid] plan and who desire such services and supplies.”11 Congress also took the unusual step of setting a uniform, national rate of federal funding, set at 90 percent of the cost of the service or supply.12 As a result of these changes, State Medicaid programs must cover family planning services and supplies; however, they are responsible for only 10 percent of their cost.

The medically needy are individuals whose incomes or resources exceed the categorical eligibility limits and are covered at State option.25 And as noted above, some states have received “waivers” from the federal government that allow them to provide family planning services to individuals who would not otherwise qualify for Medicaid.

For example, Louisiana extends coverage to otherwise uninsured women (aged 19-44) with family incomes at or below 200% of the federal poverty level (compared to Medicaid’s mandatory requirement of 133%), and Missouri extends coverage to otherwise uninsured, postpartum women (aged 18-55) for up to one year (compared to Medicaid’s mandatory requirement of 60 days). Conclusions: Most routine vaginal cuff cytology screening tests need not be performed in women who have had a hysterectomy for benign uterine conditions. And this was the same in all ethnic groups. Ninety-seven percent (97%) of women who underwent hysterectomies for benign conditions and were observed for an average period of 89 months had no cytologic abnormalities on vaginal cuff smears. These provisions are important to protect women who may be pressured to use longlasting contraceptives, regardless of side-effects, or who are facing family caps in cash assistance programs.
