The Companies That Will Cover Travel Expenses for Employee Abortions

  • June 24, 2022

After the Supreme Court’s ruling ending federal abortion rights on Friday, several companies released statements reaffirming their commitment to helping employees access health care services they may not be able to obtain in their state.

Companies began to come out with policies on covering travel expenses for employees who need abortions in May, when a leaked memo from Supreme Court justices previewed their decision on the case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. This small group included Starbucks, Tesla, Yelp, Airbnb, Netflix, Patagonia, DoorDash, JPMorgan Chase, Levi Strauss Co., PayPal and Reddit. Others, including Disney, Meta, Dick’s Sporting Goods and Condé Nast, joined them on Friday when the decision became final, though most of them avoided making public statements directly referencing the ruling.

“As the world’s most broadly based health care company, we strive to improve access and affordability, create healthier communities, and put health within reach for the people we serve,” Johnson Johnson said Friday. “We also believe health care decisions are best determined by individuals in consultation with their health care provider.”
