Media Statement: U.S. Supreme Court Ruling on Roe v. Wade

As Highmark Health evaluates the myriad of implications of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v Wade, we remain committed to working with federal officials, state policymakers, employer partners, and local health care leaders to respond to this changing landscape and provide coverage options that best meet the needs of health plan members, patients, and team members across our footprint on a state-by-state basis. 

We have and will continue to act in accordance with the laws of the communities that we serve.

Through its diverse portfolio of businesses, Highmark Health is also committed to providing a complete range of high-quality health benefits and services to women at every stage of life, and that will not change with this decision.

Allegheny Health Network is also focused on educating and training future generations of women’s health care professionals. 

Once we have determined the best path forward, within the letter of the law, we will provide guidance and continued support directly to our customers, health plan members, patients, and employees.
