42 U.S. Code § 300x–27 - Treatment services for pregnant women
prev | next
(a) In general
A funding agreement for a grant under section 300x–21 of this title is that the State involved—
(1) will ensure that each pregnant woman in the State who seeks or is referred for and would benefit from such services is given preference in admissions to treatment facilities receiving funds pursuant to the grant; and
(b) Referrals regarding States
A funding agreement for a grant under section 300x–21 of this title is that, in carrying out subsection (a)(1) of this section—
(1) the State involved will require that, in the event that a treatment facility has insufficient capacity to provide treatment services to any woman described in such subsection who seeks the services from the facility, the facility refer the woman to the State; and
(2) the State, in the case of each woman for whom a referral under paragraph (1) is made to the State—
(A) will refer the woman to a treatment facility that has the capacity to provide treatment services to the woman; or
(B) will, if no treatment facility has the capacity to admit the woman, make interim services available to the woman not later than 48 hours after the women  seeks the treatment services.
 So in original. Probably should be “woman”.
