Abortion services

Kaiser Permanente will not provide payment for abortion services or related ancillary services unless there is specific coverage for those medical services.

Specific Applicable Contract Terms

Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP) does not offer coverage of abortion procedures except in the following limited circumstances according to the approved plan brochure:

  1. The incidence of the pregnancy being a result of an act of rape or incest.
  2. The case where a woman suffers from a physical disorder, physical injury or physical illness, including a life-endangering physical condition caused by or arising from the pregnancy itself, that would, as certified by a physician, place the woman in danger of death unless an abortion is performed.
