Employer Sponsored Health Plans After Dobbs


The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade on June 24, 2022, has left many employers with questions about what this means for their employees and their employee benefit plans, including options for mitigating the impact on employees in states where medical care and benefits have been or will be immediately impacted. In this webinar, we discuss the current thinking and latest developments in this rapidly developing area, including but not limited to:

1. The impact on existing health plans, both insured and self-insured;

2. Steps employers can take now to mitigate the impact of the Dobbs decision(such as paying for out-of-state travel); and

3. Other recent developments such as recently introduced legislation; regulatory announcements, and recent post-Dobbs court decisions.
