Last week, a federal court in Western Pennsylvania blocked enforcement of the HHS mandate against the Diocese of Pittsburgh and Erie Pennsylvania, along with affiliated organizations insured under the diocesan health plan, including Catholic Charities of Western Pennsylvania among others. An appeal is expected.
The decision is important, because the Diocese itself is exempt from the mandate, but Catholic Charities isn’t. A similar challenge to the HHS mandate has brought by the Archdiocese of St. Louis and its affiliated Catholic Charities group there. For more information, click here.
