DoubleSpeak- They offer coverage… Rise Of Catholic Insurance Plans Raises Questions About Contraceptive Coverage – Kaiser Health News

That’s because such coverage has long been required by state laws or sought by non-religious employers the religious health plans serve.

Now the federal health law requires most health insurance plans, including all new plans in the individual and small group markets, to provide contraceptive coverage at no out-of-pocket cost to women.

That divergence between the Catholic court claim that any link to contraceptive coverage is forbidden and the actions of Catholic insurance plans is likely to draw more attention as more large Catholic hospital systems add insurance plans to their portfolios.
