New Birth Control Accommodation Allows Women Coverage in Nonprofits
The Obama administration granted a new accommodation that allows religious nonprofits to opt out of providing birth control by submitting objections to the Department of Health and Human Services.

The accommodation changed what originally required religious nonprofits to directly ask third-party insurers for contraception coverage, something that caused several lawsuits.
