The Department of Health and Human Services (“HHS”) has recently issued rules to address the Supreme Court’s recent Hobby Lobby ruling. Under a temporary final rule, religious nonprofit organizations can notify the government of their objection to providing contraceptive coverage for employees, rather than having to authorize the coverage themselves. The government will then arrange for contraceptive coverage. HHS also issued a proposed rule that would extend similar accommodations to closely-held, for-profit religious employers.
