    • Soup McGee ‎,"""17 (2) PURPOSES.—The purposes of this section
      18 are—
      19 (A) to ensure that health care stakeholders
      20 retain the right to provide, purchase, or enroll
      21 in health coverage that is consistent with their
      22 religious beliefs and moral convictions, without
      23 fear of being penalized or discriminated against
      24 under PPACA; and
      BAI12057 S.L.C.
      1 (B) to ensure that no requirement in
      2 PPACA creates new pressures to exclude those
      3 exercising such conscientious objection from
      4 health plans or other programs under PPACA.
      6 (1) IN GENERAL.—Section 1302(b) of the Pa7
      tient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Public
      8 Law 111–148; 42 U.S.C. 18022(b)) is amended by
      9 adding at the end the following new paragraph:
      12 ‘‘(A) FOR HEALTH PLANS.—A health plan
      13 shall not be considered to have failed to provide
      14 the essential health benefits package described
      15 in subsection (a) (or preventive health services
      16 described in section 2713 of the Public Health
      17 Service Act), to fail to be a qualified health
      18 plan, or to fail to fulfill any other requirement
      19 under this title on the basis that it declines to
      20 provide coverage of specific items or services be21
      22 ‘‘(i) providing coverage (or, in the
      23 case of a sponsor of a group health plan,
      24 paying for coverage) of such specific items
      25 or services is contrary to the religious be5
      BAI12057 S.L.C.
      1 liefs or moral convictions of the sponsor,
      2 issuer, or other entity offering the plan; or
      3 ‘‘(ii) such coverage (in the case of in4
      dividual coverage) is contrary to the reli5
      gious beliefs or moral convictions of the
      6 purchaser or beneficiary of the coverage.
      8 Nothing in this title (or any amendment made
      9 by this title) shall be construed to require an
      10 individual or institutional health care provider,
      11 or authorize a health plan to require a provider,
      12 to provide, participate in, or refer for a specific
      13 item or service contrary to the provider’s reli14
      gious beliefs or moral convictions. Notwith15
      standing any other provision of this title, a
      16 health plan shall not be considered to have
      17 failed to provide timely or other access to items
      18 or services under this title (or any amendment
      19 made by this title) or to fulfill any other re20
      quirement under this title because it has re21
      spected the rights of conscience of such a pro22
      vider pursuant to this paragraph.
      24 RIGHTS OF CONSCIENCE.—No Exchange or
      25 other official or entity acting in a governmental
      BAI12057 S.L.C.
      1 capacity in the course of implementing this title
      2 (or any amendment made by this title) shall
      3 discriminate against a health plan, plan spon4
      sor, health care provider, or other person be5
      cause of such plan’s, sponsor’s, provider’s, or
      6 person’s unwillingness to provide coverage of,
