Amicus: Zubik v. Burwell, Supreme Court of the United States

Executive Summary

The National Health Law Program filed a brief urging the Supreme Court to uphold the Affordable Care Act’s contraceptive coverage requirement, which ensures that contraceptives are among the preventive health services offered with no cost-sharing.

The amicus brief provides an in-depth understanding of the impact of cost-sharing on health care service utilization, including on contraception, and existing federal laws and programs that address coverage of and access to contraception. The brief explains how the ACA ensures access to contraception by eliminating both cost and administrative barriers.
