Illinois Company awarded right to temporarily block health care law

Danny Ciamprone at Suburban Life Media reports:

Oak Brook-based company Triune Health Group recently was awarded the right to temporarily block a requirement from the U.S. government mandating that a for-profit company provide health care insurance to cover birth control.

Judge Amy St. Eve granted the preliminary injunction. Company owners Christopher and Mary Anne Yep said the national health law’s requirement for contraceptive coverage for women violates their Roman Catholic beliefs, according to the Associated Press.

Kevin Edward White, one of the attorneys representing Triune Health Group, told Suburban Life Media the company was pleased with the decision from the judge.

“The plaintiffs look forward to pursuing their full day in court in order to vindicate their right to exercise freely their religious faith through the company,” White said.

Court documents show the company’s current group health plan covers contraceptives, sterilization and abortion. The Yeps say that’s an error and they are seeking an employee insurance policy that excludes such coverage, according to the Associated Press.

“The case will now proceed, as cases always do, and in the mean time the Yeps and Triune Health Group will not be forced to comply with the mandate while the case is being litigated,” White said. “That’s the significance of this order.”
