Supreme Court Upholds ACA Contraceptive Rule Exemptions

On July 8, 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld two regulations expanding exemptions from the contraceptive coverage mandate under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). In a 7:2 decision, the Supreme Court ruled that the Trump administration had the authority under the ACA to provide exemptions from the contraceptive mandate for employers with religious and conscientious objections. As a result, additional employers may now be able to opt out of providing the ACA-mandated contraceptive coverage.
