Amicus Brief: AHA National Coalition Brief

In a friend-of-the-court brief filed today, the AHA, along with the Federation of American Hospitals, The Catholic Health Association of the United States, America’s Essential Hospitals, and the Association of American Medical Colleges urged the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals to reject a district court decision that struck down the entire Affordable Care Act.M

In summary, the brief states, “Amici write to offer guidance, from hospitals’ perspectives, on the legal issue in this case and the harmful impact that upholding the District Court’s decision striking down the law would have on the American health care system and all who depend on it to keep them well and care for them when they are ill.
