Businesses Urge US Court to Uphold Coverage of Reproductive Health Care Benefits
June 19, 2018 // Boston, MA – Last week, Trillium Asset Management joined the U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce and a group of 15 businesses in submitting an amicus brief to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. This brief urges the court to uphold the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) requirement that employers provide comprehensive sexual and reproductive health coverage to their employees.
If the federal agencies succeed in their appeal efforts, we believe many employers would seek exemptions from the ACA requirement, meaning many thousands of women will lose access to this “essential health benefit”.
The amicus brief explains how access to contraception and reproductive health care provides women greater control over their lives, education, and careers. We’re proud to stand with the companies and organizations that are dedicated to helping women thrive in their personal and professional lives, while also contributing to their businesses and the national economy.
