Planned Parenthood and Medicaid

  • Nationwide, nearly half of Planned Parenthood patients rely on Medicaid coverage to access preventive health care, including cancer screenings and birth control.
  • Planned Parenthood plays a fundamental role in meeting the health care needs of millions of low-income and underserved women.
  • Over 36 percent of women receiving publicly funded family planning care receive their care at Planned Parenthood health centers, even though Planned Parenthood only makes up about 11 percent of the publicly funded family planning clinics nationwide.
