House bill prohibits federal funds to health plans that cover abortions
Modern Healthcare

House members on Thursday approved legislation that would amend the health reform law to prohibit federal funds from covering any part of the costs of any health plan that includes coverage for abortion services. Currently, federal funds can’t be used for abortion services, and plans that receive federal funding must keep those monies separate from any funds used for those services, according to a summary of the bill from the Congressional Research Service.
