Last month, the Virginia House of Delegates approved the Contraceptive Equity Act, which aims to eliminate certain copays, cost-sharing requirements, reimbursement requirements, and coverage delays to increase contraceptive access. Earlier this month, the Senate passed the House version of the bill. For the bill to become law, the General Assembly must consider Gov. Youngkin’s proposed religious exemption when they reconvene on April 17.

According to the governor’s office, this exemption would ensure that non-governmental plan sponsors with sincerely held religious or moral beliefs would not be obligated to provide insurance coverage for contraception, as per existing federal and state law.
