On October 23, 2015, the DOL issued 13 new FAQs dealing with:

  • Coverage of preventive services related to lactation counseling (Q&A 1-5)
  • Weight management counseling (Q&A 6)
  • Colonoscopies (Q&A 7-8)
  • Contraceptive services where the employer needs an accommodation for religious objections (Q&A 9)
