Amici Curiae Brief: Hospital Groups Urge Court to Reject Latest ACA Challenge

TEXAS, et al., Plaintiffs, v. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, et al., Defendants, and CALIFORNIA, et al., Intervenors-Defendants. Case No. 4:18-cv-00167-O


 

June 14, 2018 - Brief of the American Hospital Association, Federation of American Hospitals, The Catholic Health Association of the United States, and Association of American Medical Colleges as Amici Curiae in Support of Intervenor-Defendants

Amici’s members are deeply affected by the Nation’s health care laws, particularly the Affordable Care Act (“ACA”). See Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Pub. L. No. 111-148, 124 Stat. 119 (2010); Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010, Pub. L. No. 111-152, 124 Stat. 1029. That is why they have filed amicus briefs in support of the law in the Supreme Court, the courts of appeals, and courts across the Nation. See, e.g., King v. Burwell, 135 S. Ct. 2480 (2015); Nat’l Fed’n of Indep. Bus. v. Sebelius, 567 U.S. 519 (2012); U.S. House of Representatives v. Azar, No. 16-5202 (D.C. Cir. 2018). Just as in those cases, amici write to offer guidance, from hospitals’ perspective, on the harmful impact that striking down the law would have on the American health care system.
