Court Decision Raises Questions about Insurance Coverage for Preventive Services

A Texas District Court decision is raising questions about whether private insurers will continue to be required to provide PrEP and other preventive services for free. While the plaintiffs argued only against providing free PrEP, their arguments take aim at the constitutionality of the entire Affordable Care Act provision requiring free coverage of preventive services. While the decision will certainly be appealed, its immediate impact on insurance coverage for preventive services is not yet clear.
