The judge got it wrong. FAH believes this ruling would have a devastating impact on the patients we serve and the nation’s health care system as a whole.
Americans deserve access to affordable coverage so they can get the care they need, including consumer protections such as pre-existing conditions. Millions have gained coverage since the passage of the ACA, and this ruling could reverse that progress.
Having this decision come in the closing hours of open enrollment also sows seeds of unnecessary confusion.
We strongly believe this should be overturned in the appeals process.
