It depends on where you live. Because federal law only allows the use of federal funds for abortion in cases of rape, incest, or life endangerment of the pregnant person, in most states, Medicaid coverage for abortion is limited to these circumstances. Many of these states have banned abortion and it may be difficult to locate a provider to obtain an abortion even in cases of rape and incest. However, 17 states
do go beyond this limit and use state funds to cover other abortions for people enrolled in Medicaid.
