Contraception Coverage Decision Applies to the Feds, Not the States

The venerable Congressional Research Service, which advises Congress on a wide-range of major policy issues, recently issued a report for lawmakers on last month’s Supreme Court ruling in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, which struck down the health care overhaul law’s contraceptive services coverage requirements on “closely-held” companies.

Besides detailing the issues of the case, CRS also outlined possible legislative options. However, CRS noted that the case only applies to federal contraceptive services requirements, not various state mandates for coverage. Connecticut Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal earlier this month wrote to Hobby Lobby executives pointing out that the firm is still required by state law to offer contraception coverage to employees in Connecticut.
