Dems: Judiciary Committee Report – week 5, 2017

February 8, 2017
SF2 directs the Iowa Department of Human Services to discontinue the Medicaid Family Planning Waiver, which receives a 90/10 match from the federal government. That means the federal government picks up most of the cost; Iowa currently pays only 10 cents out of every dollar. Instead, the bill directs DHS to establish a state family planning services program that will be funded 100 percent with state money.
