New Nevada Attorney General’s Different Approach to Health Care

Nevada attorney general Aaron Ford has added the state to a lawsuit aiming to block the Trump administration from rolling back Affordable Care Act birth control requirements in employer-provided health insurance plans. Ford filed friend-of-the-court briefs, to join lawsuits filed in 2017 by attorneys general in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and California. In one case, 22 states and the District of Columbia seek a court order to stop the federal government from letting employers with religious or moral objections withhold insurance coverage for contraceptive care and services. Gov. Steve Sisolak supports Ford’s filings.
