Supreme Court to Hear Two Cases on Religious Corporations Challenging Contraceptive Mandate

The issue of PPACA’s Preventative Services Mandate was recently covered in Danielle Capilla and Nicole Stone’s lecture for the Health Law Institute’s Lecture Series on October 22. At the time of the lecture, petitions for writ of certiorari were pending with the Supreme Court of the United States. On Tuesday, November 26,  the Supreme Court agreed to hear two cases on whether corporations may refuse to provide insurance coverage for contraception to their employees, based on the religious views of the corporation’s owners.

The Supreme Court agreed to hear Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, No. 13-354, and Conestoga Wood Specialties v. Sebelius, No. 13-356.
