1h 30m

Created on April 08, 2019





The Affordable Care Act (the "ACA") requires most health plans to provide first dollar coverage of FDA-approved contraception methods. Nine years after the ACA's enactment, this contraception mandate continues to be one of the most embattled provisions of the ACA. This program, taught by Patricia Moran, an employee benefits attorney at Mintz Levin, will provide a comprehensive overview of the contraception mandate from the employer's perspective, including a discussion of which health plans are covered by the mandate, what the mandate requires, how the mandate interacts with health savings accounts (HSAs), and penalties for noncompliance.

The course will also review the current religious exemptions and accommodations available to employers and ongoing litigation related to the expansion of religious and moral objections.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Advise employers on the ACA's contraceptive coverage requirements

  2. Review the various religious and moral exemptions

  3. Discuss current litigation and the potential impact on the future of the contraceptive coverage
