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%. The target was revised from 23 states to 24 states because the original target did not correctly represent the 10 percent improvement target-setting method.
