Quick Takeaway:

Abbott Labs offers a very solid DRIP plan for DRIP investors. All purchase and dividend reinvestment fees are paid by the company and optional cash purchases can be made on a monthly basis. The company does not currently offer a direct enrollment option for non-shareholders, so those interested will need to own at least one share of Abbott Labs stock to be eligible.
