About the Data

Description of the data source, numerator, denominator, survey questions, and other relevant details about the national estimate.

Data Source: 
Medicaid Family Planning Eligibility Expansions
Medicaid Income Eligibility Limits for Adults
Changed Since the Healthy People 2020 Launch: 
Yes
Measure: 
number
Baseline (Year): 
41 (2015)
Target: 
51
Target-Setting Method: 
Total coverage
Target-Setting Method Justification: 
The original purpose and policy goal of the Affordable Care Act is for all 50 States and the District of Columbia provide coverage for individuals up to 133% of the poverty level through Medicaid expansions. Although only 29 States have adopted Medicaid expansions, 40 provide coverage for family planning through 1115 waivers or State Plan Amendment. Discussion is ongoing within States who do not currently provide coverage about covering family planning because of the demonstrated cost savings by providing publicly funded family planning. Thus a total coverage goal is recommended for HP2020.
Numerator: 

The number of States in which the income-eligibility level for Medicaid-funded family planning services is at or above 133% of the poverty threshold

Comparable Healthy People 2010 Objective: 
Not applicable

Any change to the objective text, baseline, target, target-setting method or data source since the Healthy People 2020 launch.

Description of Changes Since the Healthy People 2020 Launch: 
The original objective statement for FP-14 was to “Increase the number of States that set the income eligibility level for Medicaid-covered family planning services to at least the same level used to determine eligibility for Medicaid-covered, pregnancy-related care.” In 2015, this objective was split into two measures to respond to health systems changes resulting from the passage of the Affordable Care Act. FP-14.1 monitors the number of States setting the income-eligibility for Medicaid-covered family planning services at or above 133% of the poverty threshold. FP-14.2 monitors the number of States with income-eligibility at or above 185%.
