The Departments issued an advance notice of proposed rulemaking regarding organizations that object to providing contraceptive benefits, as required by PPACA for non-grandfathered plans. The proposed amendments would establish alternative ways to fulfill these requirements when health coverage is sponsored or arranged by an organization that objects to the coverage of contraceptive services for religious reasons, but that is not exempt under the final regulations published February 15, 2012. The Departments are requesting comments as to the possible approaches of defining what entities would qualify for the accommodation and who would administer the accommodation, while ensuring that contraceptive coverage is provided to plan participants and beneficiaries (or, in the case of student health insurance plans, student enrollees and their dependents) without cost sharing. Comments are due on or before June 19, 2012 and will be made available to the public.
