(215 ILCS 5/356z.4a)
Coverage for abortion.
(a) Except as otherwise provided in this Section, no individual or group policy of accident and health insurance that provides pregnancy-related benefits may be issued, amended, delivered, or renewed in this State after the effective date of this amendatory Act of the 101st General Assembly unless the policy provides a covered person with coverage for abortion care.
(b) Coverage for abortion care may not impose any deductible, coinsurance, waiting period, or other cost-sharing limitation that is greater than that required for other pregnancy-related benefits covered by the policy.
(c) Except as otherwise authorized under this Section, a policy shall not impose any restrictions or delays on the coverage required under this Section.
(d) This Section does not, pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 18054(a)(6), apply to a multistate plan that does not provide coverage for abortion.
(e) If the Department concludes that enforcement of this Section may adversely affect the allocation of federal funds to this State, the Department may grant an exemption to the requirements, but only to the minimum extent necessary to ensure the continued receipt of federal funds.
