The implications for health benefits and HR communications in a post-Roe workplace

We’ll discuss the ramifications for group health plan sponsors and strategies for communicating plan changes to employees on this highly charged issue.

Watch today »

The recently released Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization will allow each state to decide whether and how to restrict or ban abortion. The impact on health plan sponsors is immediate and will create decision points and communications challenges for employers and employer-sponsored benefit plans that cover family planning benefits, and the effect will vary by state. 

Join us to learn:

  • Critical decision points for employer-sponsored health plans
  • Travel benefits considerations
  • How existing and proposed state legislation may impact coverage of abortion and other women's health services
  • ERISA preemption
  • How to thoughtfully communicate with employees on this topic
