Procter & Gamble extends medical care coverage after Roe vs Wade overturned

THE WHAT? Procter & Gamble has become the latest company to announce that it is extending travel support for employees covered by its health care plan, according to a report published by Bloomberg.

THE DETAILS From January 1, all US health care plans will cover travel expenses incurred for covered treatments and procedures that aren’t available within a 50-mile radius of the employee’s home.

THE WHY? The announcement follows the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe vs Wade, removing the constitutional right to abortion, although the US FMCG manufacturer was keen to avoid explicitly linking the two events, presumably since half the country is poised to ban terminations and that’s quite a significant proportion of its market. A spokesperson for Procter & Gamble told Bloomberg, “A range of external factors are increasingly affecting access to health care in the US.”
