CHA satisfied with Obama administration’s contraception solution
Modern Healthcare

The Catholic Health Association, one of the Obama administration’s most reliable allies in passing and promoting the healthcare reform law, has made peace with the contraception provision that distressed many of its members.

After months of talks between church officials and the White House, the CHA said in a memorandum to Catholic healthcare providers suggesting the organization is satisfied with the administration’s solution for ensuring workers have access to contraception at no out-of-pocket cost while not compelling religious employers to pay for it or arrange it.
