Non-Covered Reproductive Health Care

The Department of the Air Force has issued guidance, effective February 24, implementing Department of Defense policies outlining privacy of command notification of pregnancy, administrative absence for non-covered reproductive health care and unit-funded travel for those seeking non-covered reproductive health care.

Non-covered reproductive health care is defined in this policy as lawfully available, assisted reproductive technology and non-covered abortions.

These updated policies are intended to assist members who may need to travel greater distances, take more time away from work and pay higher out-of-pocket expenses to access non-covered reproductive health care because of their specific duty location.
