The Trump administration on Friday rolled back an ObamaCare requirement that employers include birth-control coverage in their health insurance plans.

Under a highly anticipated rule published Friday, any employer or insurer can stop following the birth control mandate on moral and religious grounds. The rule takes effect immediately.

ObamaCare mandated that employers, with a few exceptions, offer health insurance that covers birth control without a co-pay.

The rule approved Friday allows any employer, including colleges, universities and health insurance companies, to stop following the rule. Previously, only houses of worship and some companies could be exempt.
