Following the Roe v. Wade decision, Apple claims to cover out-of-state medical treatment

Apple has sent an open letter expressing its support for its workers’ ability to make their own choices and reaffirming that existing medical coverage include out-of-state travel for those who need it.

“The corporation has published this statement after the Supreme Court’s 6-3 verdict in favour of overturning Roe v,”

“As we’ve said before, we support our employees’ rights to make their own decisions regarding their reproductive health. For more than a decade, Apple’s comprehensive benefits have allowed our employees to travel out-of-state for medical care if it is unavailable in their home state.”

Statement and report indicate that there is not a shift in the company’s position on abortion legislation proceedings in Texas, which it briefed workers about in September. Full medical insurance is provided to all Apple workers, both full- and part-time, both in the United States and overseas, regardless of their employment status. Employees’ spouses and families may also be covered.

“Our team’s health and well-being is our primary concern,” SVP of Retail + People Deirdre O’Brien said on Instagram.

Legislators from the Democratic Party have written to the Federal Trade Commission requesting an investigation into Apple’s use of damaging data monitoring for advertising reasons. In the aftermath of Roe v. Wade being overruled, state prosecutors in states where abortion is prohibited “would soon be able to seek warrants for location information on anybody who has visited an abortion provider,” a particular worry was expressed.

“Online advertising has been transformed into an aggressive surveillance system that incentivizes and supports the unfettered gathering and continual selling of Americans’ personal data,” the four senators said in their letter to Apple.

Several high-profile corporations, like Apple, have said they would cover out-of-state travel after the judgement. T-Mobile and Airbnb are examples of businesses that aren’t on this list.
