Commonwealth of Pennsylvania v. Biden et al.

Docket No.
District Court
Pennsylvania Eastern


  • Invalidate all or part of a federal regulation
  • Stop the government from enforcing the statute or regulation

Litigation Content

Why this Matters:

The plaintiff alleges that federal regulations exempting certain employers from providing women access to insurance plans that guarantee coverage of contraception without cost-sharing violate the Administrative Procedure Act, the Affordable Care Act, the Due Process Clause of the Fifth Amendment, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Pregnancy Discrimination Act, and the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment. Broader exemptions to contraceptive coverage requirements could result in higher out-of-pocket costs and reduced access to services, making it more difficult to access this care.

Potential Impact:

Efforts to extend exemptions to contraceptive coverage requirements would impose higher costs on consumers and reduce access to needed services.
