Comprehensive Contraception Coverage Act (S.3668-Bonacic/A.1378-Cahill) (A.9957-Cahill)

New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s Comprehensive Contraception Coverage Act (CCCA) would require all group insurance policies issued or renewed after January 1, 2019 to cover abortion-causing drugs, voluntary sterilization procedures, and all other FDA-approved contraceptive devices without restrictions, copays, or cost sharing. Attorney General Schneiderman’s proposal is wrong-headed on multiple fronts; the CCCA is disrespectful of human life, and it would exacerbate existing flaws in New York insurance law regarding conscience protections for faith-based charities.
