Employee Benefits Post-Dobbs Planning Considerations (Employee Benefit Plan Review)

Much has been written about the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson to overturn the constitutional right to abortion. For employers in particular, the Dobbs decision raised a number of questions about employee benefit plans. Some employers reviewed the abortion-related services covered under their group health plans in order to determine whether any changes were necessary or desirable. Others also reviewed their travel reimbursement policies, and made decisions about whether to reimburse for travel costs incurred to obtain abortion services. ERISA & Executive Compensation partners Rachel Faye Smith, Melissa Sandak and Natascha George discuss a few employee benefit plan issues that employers should consider when managing their employee benefit plans after Dobbs in Employee Benefit Plan Review.
