NWLC Hopeful New Rule Means Guaranteed Contraceptive Coverage For All Women
(Washington, D.C.) The National Women’s Law Center today responded to the White House announcement of an accommodation for religiously-affiliated employers opposed to the contraceptive coverage provision of the health care law.
The new rule would require insurance companies to offer contraceptive coverage for no additional charge to employees of non-exempted religiously-affiliated organizations.
The following statement is from Marcia D. Greenberger, Co-President of the National Women’s Law Center:
“Given the importance of ensuring that all women have access to contraception in their health care insurance without deductible or co-pays, the Center is very hopeful that this goal will be met without burdensome obstacles for women, no matter where they work. We will closely monitor the implementation of this new rule and continue to work to make sure that all women have access to this essential health benefit.”
