Roe v. Wade Decision: Impact on Benefit Plans
The Impact of Roe v. Wade Decision on Benefit Plans
The U.S. Supreme Court issued its opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization on June 24th, overturning Roe v. Wade, ending nearly half a century of federally protected abortion rights and returning authority back to the individual states.
States will now have the authority to regulate abortion and related services. Employers will face many questions regarding their benefit plans and what, if any, abortion benefits they choose to maintain or establish in the wake of this landmark decision.
