Walmart Expands Abortion Coverage for Employees Including Travel Support
In the wake of Roe v. Wade, Walmart, who employs almost 1.6 million people across the U.S, announced changes to their healthcare plan in a recent memo sent to employees. According the the memo, abortion coverage will be expanded.
In a memo sent to employees on Friday, the company said its health care plans will now cover abortion for employees “when there is a health risk to the mother, rape or incest, ectopic pregnancy, miscarriage or lack of fetal viability.”
The new policy will also offer “travel support” for workers and dependents covered under their health care plans so they can access services that are not available within 100 miles of their locations, Donna Morris, the retailer’s chief people officer, said in the memo.
Walmart employs nearly 1.6 million people in the U.S. In Arkansas, where the company is based, abortion is banned under all circumstances unless the procedure is needed to protect the life of the mother in a medical emergency. There are no exceptions for rape or incest.
It is unclear if the changes will extend to elective abortions.
