Government Proposes Expanded Relief From Contraceptive Mandate

February 06 - Posted at 3:01 PM Tagged: , ,

The 2010 health care reform law requires health plans to provide women’s preventative care and services without cost sharing. Regulations issued August 1, 2011 included all FDA-approved contraception for women in the definition of women’s preventive care and services. That includes abortion and abortifacient drugs (like the so-called “morning-after” pill). The regulations were effective for the first plan year beginning on or after August 1, 2012. The government released proposed regulations on January 30, 2013, that would amend those regulations.
