The 20 million Americans who have gained health insurance under the Affordable Care Act deserve to be secure in their coverage. While today’s Supreme Court decision to review the challenge to the ACA brings us one step closer to the resolution patients need, these critical coverage gains will remain in unnecessary limbo without expedited review. We strongly urge a prompt decision in favor of the ACA and its protections for patients with pre-existing conditions, expansion of the Medicaid program, creation of new and innovative models of care and many other critical benefits.
America’s hospitals and health systems and the patients we serve are ready to put this legal fight behind us – for good.
