Montana proposes new abortion rule

The Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services held a Zoom hearing Thursday about a proposed rule surrounding Medicaid’s abortion coverage. The rule would only allow physicians to perform Medicaid-funded abortions and require doctors to provide more medical information to Medicaid.
