Wisconsin Abortion and Contraceptive Coverage Opt-Out Bill (AB 216)
This law was last updated on Feb 12, 2014
AB 216 would have banned Wisconsin’s insurance program for public employees from covering abortions, and would have exempted religious organizations from providing contraceptives under employee-sponsored health insurance plans.
An amendment to the bill would also have allowed employees of religious organizations to have contraception coverage if contraception is prescribed for a medical reason other than preventing pregnancy, but would have required that the employee request such coverage from her employer.
Companion bill to SB 202.
