You are the chief nursing executive for a small rural clinic that provides contraception services to low-income individuals. An insurer, providing care under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), has rejected paying the claims, stating that they are a not-for-profit religious organization and are not obliged to cover these services. You check your records and find that nonpayment for contraception places a significant financial burden on the clinic. These individuals do not have access to any other health care services in the region.
- What would you do to advocate for the patients of the clinic affected by the change?
- How do you justify your actions based on legal and ethical guidelines? Be sure to support your position with a scholarly source.
