Ten Things You Didn’t Know Were In The Affordable Care Act
#5: Privacy Breaks for Nursing Mothers (Sec. 4207)
Requires employers with 50 or more employees to provide a
private location at their worksites where nursing mothers "can express
breast milk." Employers must also provide employees with "a reasonable
break time" to do this, though employers are not required to pay their
employees during these nursing breaks.
#10: Assisted Suicide (Sec. 1553)
Forbids the federal government or anyone receiving federal
health funds from discriminating against any health care entity that
won't provide an "item or service furnished for the purpose of causing …
the death of any individual, such as by assisted suicide, euthanasia,
or mercy killing."
