The Department of Health and Human Services is currently considering a waiver that would allow Texas to receive federal Medicaid family planning funds despite the state’s refusal to follow federal law by banning providers who offer abortion care, like Planned Parenthood, from receiving federal Medicaid family planning funds. Texas also wants HHS permission to impose dangerous and unlawful barriers that would jeopardize access to healthcare for minors and immigrants. People have until August 4 to submit comments to HHS. Under federal law, Medicaid patients are supposed to be guaranteed the ability to receive medical services from any qualified person or institution that provides such care. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, as well as the courts, has consistently upheld this right, and forbidden states from defunding a provider simply because they offer a legal medical service, such as abortion. Texas has already demonstrated that excluding qualified providers from the family planning network severely reduces low-income women’s access to care. Since 2011, the state has refused federal family planning money due to the fact that they would then be required to fund family planning clinics that offer abortion services.

During the Obama presidency, the Department of Health’s Office of Adolescent Health issued five-year research grants  as part of its Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program (TPPP). But programs funded by the TPPP received word in mid-July that their grants would be terminated two years early. The loss of federal funds will prevent researchers from analyzing the data they have already gathered, rendering their findings scientifically invalid. Thus, the government money that these programs have already spent will be wasted.<div>

Under Trump’s advisement, federal officials have drafted a rule creating a massive loophole for employers to bypass the Affordable Care Act’s mandate requiring health insurance plans provided to employees to include contraception coverage. The draft, published by Vox, still requires said coverage, but greatly widens the scope exemption by allowing for anyone to issue claims of religious or moral objection in order to bypass the mandate.<div>
