Yahoo Finance legal reporter Alexis Keenan details how Walmart is expanding abortion coverage for its employees, while a new lawsuit shows how the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) might defend health data after being sued by Kochava.
MoffettNathanson Managing Director and Equity Research Analyst Robert Fishman joins Yahoo Finance Live to discuss Paramount’s streaming strategy, plans to acquire U.S. rights to the Championships League, the Paramount-Walmart streaming deal, and the outlook for streaming giants.
In a Friday memo to its 1.6 million U.S. employees that was seen by Reuters, the retailer said its self-insured healthcare plans will now cover abortion "when there is a health risk to the mother, rape or incest, ectopic pregnancy, miscarriage or lack of fetal viability." Company employees and their family members will also have their travel costs paid for, if they cannot access a covered legal abortion within 100 miles of their location, according to the memo. A host of other companies including JPMorgan Chase & Co, Amazon.com Inc and Walt Disney Co have also expanded their insurance policies to offer travel benefits to U.S. employees who may need to access out-of-state abortion services.
