Because of the Affordable Care Act, 20 million people have health insurance, millions with pre-existing conditions have access to the care they need and new and innovative models of care have been launched. This wrong-headed decision puts all of that and more in jeopardy.
America’s hospitals and health systems are disappointed that the court has declined to rule on which parts of the ACA can remain. Sending the decision back to the federal district court that invalidated the entire law puts health coverage – and peace of mind – for millions of Americans at risk.
We will continue to support and work for protecting patient care and coverage.
