State health insurance does not pay for abortion.
Idaho’s free state health insurance program (Idaho Medicaid) does not pay for abortion unless the procedure is necessary to save a person's life, or the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest. NWAAF is not aware of any case in which a person was able to get Idaho Medicaid to pay for an abortion.
