Research project

Understanding Abortion Care through Medi-Cal Data

Why study Medi-Cal?

Medi-Cal is California’s state Medicaid program, and one of 17 state Medicaid programs that covers abortion and subsequent care. Medi-Cal covers 49% of abortions in California and 8% of abortions in the country. Medi-Cal data present a unique opportunity to understand abortion care because it can be used to track all subsequent care among a cohort of patients having an abortion longitudinally after their abortion with virtually no loss to follow-up. We utilized Medi-Cal data to better understand abortion safety, distance traveled for abortion, and sources of care after abortion.
