I find it ironic that it took potential abortion bans to get medical travel reimbursement added to the benefits. As if traveling for cancer treatment or specialized surgery was free until now. But because they won't call it abortion travel reimbursement, they call it medical and mental health travel

Earlier in my career I had to see a specific heart specialist for a procedure that was only available at the Cleveland Clinic, which was nowhere near where I lived. The travel portion of that procedure put a significant crimp on my early career finances and it would have been great to have the medical travel benefit then, but clearly our firms didn't care until now. 🙄

Does anyone in Dallas have a good church (non denom) small group that fits within a consultants travel schedule? I need something that’s between Thursday night to Sunday and it’s so hard to find that. Even Monday nights could work if it’s like 8 pm or something and I can block off an hour.

Thanks for the help!
