ANSWER

Generally, student health plans have to cover contraceptives. However, a recent change in federal rules allows a college or university that has an objection based on “sincerely religious beliefs or moral convictions” to exclude some or all contraceptives from the student health plan. However this exemption is being legally challenged. (45 C.F.R. § 147.131)
