New Bill Passed: Employers Are Not Required to Insure Contraceptives

Veto_Override_1The Missouri Legislature passed a law on September 10th which overrides the Federal mandate on birth control. This new law means that individuals, employers, and insurers can cite religious or moral exemptions from mandatory insurance coverage for abortion, contraception, and sterilization. This law also requires insurers to provide policies without these coverages for any individuals or employers that request it and gives grounds to file a lawsuit against insurers if they refuse to provide such policies. Although oppositions are occurring throughout the state, most provisions of the law have already taken effect.
