Fact Sheet

News Release

As we went to press with this week’s edition of the EBIA Weekly, the IRS, DOL, and HHS released advance copies of two final regulations offering exemptions from aspects of health care reform’s preventive health services mandate to certain employers and others with religious or moral objections to health insurance that covers contraceptives. We will cover these regulations—scheduled to be published in the Federal Register on November 15—in next week’s EBIA Weekly. Meanwhile, for more information, see EBIA’s Health Care Reform manual at Section XII.C (“Coverage of Preventive Health Services”) and EBIA’s Group Health Plan Mandates manual at Section XIV.E (“Contraceptive Coverage: Exemptions and Accommodations Based on Religious Beliefs and Moral Convictions”).
