A release and a blog post from the Department of Health and Human Services (“HHS”) on Friday announced that starting in 2015, health insurance companies will be required to offer coverage to same-sex spouses if they offer coverage for opposite-sex spouses.

The blog post, from Dr. Matthew Heinz, HHS Director of Provider & LGBT Outreach, lauded the clarification as “one more step toward making health care coverage more accessible and equitable for married same-sex couples.”
