Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization Ruling Update
The Episcopal Church Medical Trust (Medical Trust) remains committed to providing access to high quality reproductive healthcare services. We understand that as a result of the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, state legislative actions may impact the reproductive healthcare services that the Medical Trust can provide in certain states.
Please know that we continue to evaluate these legislative actions with the goal of identifying alternative ways to make reproductive healthcare services available to all impacted members and will keep you updated on any developments.
We appreciate your patience and understanding as we continue to monitor the various legislative developments across the country. As always, we remain committed to ensuring our clients’ rights to reproductive healthcare services.
If there is an immediate need for services that may be impacted by these legislative developments, members of the Medical Trust’s medical plans can contact their carrier’s member services team using the number on the back of their member ID card or by visiting their carrier’s online member portal, in order to discuss what services are currently covered.
