The Affordable Care Act (ACA; P.L. 111-148) requires that group health plans and health insurance issuers provide coverage for certain preventive health services without imposing any cost-sharing requirements. 42 U.S.C. §300gg- 13(a)(4). The preventive services covered include Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved contraceptive methods, which generated controversy among employers who oppose the use of contraception based on their religious beliefs. This requirement has been implemented through a series of administrative regulations since 2010, when ACA was enacted.
