Supreme Court Decision to Affect Coverage

Jul 17, 2015

The Supreme Court of the United States recently ruled that all couples have a fundamental right to marriage, whatever their gender. In addition, each state must recognize a marriage that was entered into in a different jurisdiction.

This means that marriage is the law of the land, and each state must allow couples of the same gender to marry. Same-sex spouses are entitled to the same legal obligations, responsibilities, protections and benefits provided under state laws to other spouses.

Employers who offer health coverage for spouses will now be required to provide coverage to same-sex spouses if they aren’t already.
