Supreme Court Rejects Contraceptive Mandate for Some Companies

The ACA requires non-grandfathered health plans to provide cost-free coverage for all FDA-approved contraceptive methods. Some closely held, for-profit companies challenged the ACA’s contraceptive mandate on religious grounds. On June 30, 2014, the U.S. Supreme Court created an exception to the contraceptive mandate for certain closely held businesses with sincere religious objections. The attached Compliance Bulletin describes the Court’s ruling and its impact on the contraceptive mandate.
