H.R. 973 would exempt an employer opposed by reason of adherence to a religious belief or moral conviction from the tax penalty imposed for failure of a group health plan to cover required women’s preventive care and screenings.

The bill would prohibit the Secretary of Labor from bringing an action against a plan to enforce any requirement to provide such coverage to which an employer is opposed by reason of adherence to a religious belief or moral conviction.

The bill would exempt group health plans from penalties under state and federal enforcement provisions of the Public Health Service Act for failure to meet such women’s health requirements insofar as they concern coverage to which an employer is opposed on the basis of religious belief or moral conviction.
