Fordham will continue to pay for employee birth control

Fordham says it will continue to pay for employees’ birth control, despite the Supreme Court’s recent ruling that allows family-owned employers with religions objections to opt out of providing contraception coverage under the Affordable Care Act.

And that’s not likely to change any time soon.

“As required by New York state law, contraception is covered by the student and employee insurance plans,” the university said in a statement released to Fordham Daily. “The university does not anticipate any changes to this coverage following the Supreme Court’s decision in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby.”

Still, a number of religiously affiliated colleges around the country — including the University of Notre Dame, Wheaton College and Union University — have filed lawsuits against the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate.
