Walmart Expands Employee Abortion Coverage and Will Include Travel Expenses

Posted on

Walmart, the country’s largest private employer, with over 1.6 million workers in the United States, said on Friday it would expand the coverage of abortions and related travel expenses in its health care plans.

The company said its plans would cover abortion in the case of “health risk to the mother, rape or incest, ectopic pregnancy, miscarriage or lack of fetal viability,” according to a memo from Walmart’s chief people officer, Donna Morris, which was reviewed by The New York Times.

Walmart would also assist in covering travel expenses for employees seeking health care services that were not available within 100 miles of their homes. The company is based in Arkansas, which has banned abortion with no exceptions for rape or incest.

When the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in June, dozens of companies came forward to announce that they would cover abortion-related travel expenses. At the time, Walmart said it was “working thoughtfully and diligently to figure out the best path forward,” but did not make any immediate changes to its health care policies.
