EEOC Pregnancy Discrimination Enforcement Guidance Implicates Contraception Coverage Concerns
Jackson Lewis LLP Link to more items from this source
[Guidance Overview]
July 15, 2014
"[T]he Guidance provides that employers violate Title VII by providing health insurance that excludes coverage for prescription contraceptives, whether the contraceptives are provided for birth control or medical purposes.... [In] order to comply with Title VII, employer provided health plans must cover prescription contraceptives on the same basis as other prescription drugs, devices and services that are used to prevent the occurrence of medical conditions other than pregnancy: if an employer provided health plan covers preventive care for vaccinations, physical examinations and prescription drugs to prevent high blood pressure or to lower cholesterol levels, then prescription contraceptives must also be covered."
