Catholic university sues insurer for covering contraception

Duquesne University is suing Highmark Inc for improperly covering the costs of contraception.

Duquesne University on Tuesday filed a lawsuit against Highmark Inc., claiming that the insurer improperly paid reimbursements for birth control and other medications and procedures that go against the school’s Catholic mission.

Filed in the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas, the lawsuit seeks damages of $1.75 million.

News like this reminds me not to be surprised that the coverage of contraception in the Health Care Reform law was ever even in question.
