Michigan insurance companies to offer abortion riders

LANSING (WKZO) -- Seven health insurance companies in the state will be offering abortion coverage riders when a new law takes effect on Thursday. State lawmakers in December passed a law prompted by a Right to Life petition drive and not subject to a veto from Governor Snyder to outlaw insurance companies from offering abortion coverage as a standard feature.

According to the Michigan Department of Insurance and Financial Regulation, the riders will cost employers providing coverage for their workers anywhere from one to 32-cents a month. Individual policies sold through the Affordable Care Act website will not have the option for a rider.
