NEW YORK (Reuters) – Wells Fargo & Co told staff on Monday it will reimburse employees and their dependents for travel and lodging costs associated with traveling more than 50 miles for healthcare services, like abortions, according to a memo seen by Reuters.

It is the latest financial company to expand healthcare policies to cover these costs following the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision announced last week overturning the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that recognized a woman’s constitutional right to an abortion. [L1N2YB1AQ]
