Boston Catholic hospital system bids for state contract including abortion referrals

February 27, 2009

The Caritas Christi Health Care network, an arm of the Archdiocese of Boston, has joined in a bid to provide government-subsidized health insurance in Massachusetts. The state-mandated program would include coverage for abortion and contraceptives. Caritas Christi, which is joining with Centene Corporation in a bid for the government contract, has said that it "will contract with providers, both in and out of the Caritas network, to ensure access to all services required by the authority, including confidential family planning services."
