Hobby Lobby is a closely-held, Oklahoma-based corporation and is owned exclusively by a family. The wholly-owned, family corporation provided insurance to its employees which included 16 methods of birth control as part of its health care plan at no charge. The regulation in question, issued by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), requires ACA-covered employers to provide 20 types of birth control, including four which may prevent an already fertilized egg from developing further (abortifacients), certain intrauterine devices (IUDs) and what is commonly referred to as the “morning after” pill. For religious reasons, Hobby Lobby objected to paying for four types of contraception known as abortifacients.
