Insurance Question Could Prevent Abortion Doctors From Having Admitting Privileges

(STATEHOUSE) - A bill requiring abortion doctors to have hospital admitting privileges could derail not over the abortion issue, but an insurance question.

The house voted unanimously to add to the abortion bill a provision authored by Mishawaka Democrat Craig Fry, guaranteeing coverage for breast and cervical cancer screenings under the state's healthy Indiana plan insurance program for the uninsured.

Fry voted against the final bill, but that extra provision makes it impossible to bring the bill to the floor in the senate, which has stricter rules requiring the parts of a bill to be related.

Changing the bill requires a conference committee, and the house hasn't appointed its negotiators.
