Supreme Court upholds Affordable Care Act

Case Management Insider, July 14, 2015

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled 6-3 in favor of defeating the latest challenge related to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

The case focused on the wording of the law, claiming that premium health insurance subsidies were not authorized under the law in 34 states that rely on the federal HealthCare.gov exchange, according to HealthLeaders Media.

“Today is a significant victory for protecting access to care for many of those who need it. America’s hospitals will continue to advocate for coverage for all, an essential part of better health and better health care for Americans,” American Medical Association President and Chief Executive Officer Rich Umbdenstock wrote in a statement.
