    I assume UPS will drop medical coverage of unmarried same-sex partners due to the Supreme Court ruling. What other changes will UPS need to make?

    That should do it.
    UPS will reduce overall costs!

    My guess is that at the end of the year, when we select benefits for the following year, only married UPSers where there spouse can't get health coverage from their employer will be eligible to have spousal benefits.

    That's logical. I guess the cost to UPS would depend on how many currently receiving benefits decide to get married. Probably some folks already sweating that decision.
