Supreme Court Upholds Affordable Care Act

Yesterday, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is constitutional. We will continue to review the ruling, but it is clear the Court’s decision to uphold the law does not have an impact on our business strategy or commitment to reforms that make quality care more affordable and accessible. We will continue to fully comply with the requirements of the ACA.

At the same time, we recognize that the ACA did not do enough to address the serious challenges facing our health care system, and we need to fix the problems that remain.

We will continue to keep our focus on compliance with the law. We have dedicated employees and made significant investments to ensure our full compliance with the ACA. We have been, and will continue to be, ready to meet the requirements of the law as we work to address the complex and challenging issues that continue to confront our health care system. We are committed to working with policymakers and other stakeholders to bring about solutions that will make our health care system work better for everyone.

We have an opportunity – if we take a bipartisan approach—to make changes to the financing and delivery of health care so that employers can continue to provide coverage, and Medicare and Medicaid can be made viable long term. As a nation, it is vital that we capitalize on private sector solutions as well as legislative reforms to address the complex and challenging issues that continue to confront our health care system.
