The Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion late last week took steps to let more em­ploy­ers opt out of pro­vid­ing birth con­trol to women at no cost.

Modern Healthcare - - LATE NEWS -

The new rule will al­low any cor­po­ra­tion or not-for­profit group to ex­clude the cov­er­age on re­li­gious or moral ob­jec­tions. The new pol­icy is a long-ex­pected revi­sion to fed­eral rules that re­quire most com­pa­nies to cover birth con­trol as pre­ven­tive care for women at no ad­di­tional cost. The ad­min­is­tra­tion also is tight­en­ing over­sight of how plans sold un­der Oba­macare cover abor­tion. With lim­ited ex­cep­tions, abor­tions can only be paid for through a sep­a­rate pre­mium col­lected from en­rollees. No pub­lic sub­si­dies can be used, ex­cept in cases that in­volve rape, in­cest or pre­serv­ing the life of the mother.
