- Excerpt from Hobby Lobby decision further complicates ACA implementation:

This morning, the U.S. Supreme Court announced its ruling in the much anticipated Burwell v. Hobby Lobby case, holding that closely-held companies could not be required to cover contraceptives in employee insurance health plans if the corporation owners have religious objections. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) required all health plans to cover preventive health services for women, which the Institute of Medicine (IOM) subsequently defined to include contraceptive products approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
