On Friday, October 6, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued new rules impacting access to birth control coverage under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The administration released two rules: one offering an exemption based on religious beliefs,1 and a second offering an exemption based on moral beliefs.2
While these rules are not currently in effect, that could change at any time, and it is important for us to know that our birth control coverage is secure. These rules would allow college and University Presidents and Board members to decide not to cover birth control if they have a religious or moral objection. This rule has the potential to have a far-reaching impact across the country and threatens birth control access for students that get their health care through college and university health plans.
We, members of the University of Idaho community, call on Chuck Staben and University of Idaho Administration to stand with other colleges and universities to affirm to employees and students that you will continue to provide coverage for birth control in the campus health insurance policy.
