DENVER (AP) - A federal judge has barred the government from requiring three companies in Colorado to provide certain kinds of contraception under the federal health care law.

The order Tuesday cites last year’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling that some companies with religious objections can avoid the contraceptives requirement.

Tuesday’s order says Continuum Health Partnerships, Continuum Health Management and Mountain States Health Properties can’t be required to include contraception or sterilization in their health insurance because of their religious objections.

Continuum Health Partnerships and Continuum Health Management are based in Greeley and operate independent living, assisted living and skilled nursing care centers in Colorado. Representatives of the management company didn’t immediately return a phone message.

No phone number could be found for Mountain States Health Properties.

The federal government agreed to the order.
