Michigan 'rape insurance' law goes into effect Published: March 13, 2014

When it comes to abortion rights and insurance plans, today is an important day in Michigan.

Michigan residents who buy health coverage in the private marketplace after Thursday will not have access to abortion coverage, even if a pregnancy is the result of rape or incest.

On that day, a new state law goes into effect that prohibits insurance companies from covering abortion services unless customers purchase separate add-ons – called riders – to their insurance plans ahead of time.
