The Obamacare Religious Exemption You Didn't Expect
In the midst of a pending Supreme Court case, challenging a mandate that employers pay for contraception despite religious objections, it appears that the Affordable Care Act doesn't discriminate against all religions.
While most smokers will be penalized with higher premium rates, you will probably be exempt if you are Native American (or just a believer in Native American traditions). A screen shot from HealthCare.gov clearly explains that you do not have to disclose information on tobacco use, if it is for "Religious or Ceremonial" purposes.
This should be good news for Elizabeth Warren.
