Is the HHS mandate delayed with the employer mandate?

The Obama Administration recently announced that the “employer mandate” of the PPACA (Obamacare) would be delayed until 2015.  This is the part of the law that mandates that employers with more than 50 employees provide health care coverage, or face stiff fines.  Many have wondered, does this action also delay the “HHS mandate” which requires employers with more than 50 employees to provide contraception, abortion drugs, and sterilization in employee health care plans, free of copay.  

The Becket Fund says, “no.”  The HHS mandate was recently finalized, and lawsuits are not affected by this recent action by the Treasury Department.  The HHS mandate remains a threat to religious freedom and, if not changed, will force many organizations and businesses into a choice between crippling fines or violating their faith.

The “individual mandate” is also not affected.
