Category: Affordable Care Act, Statement

FAH President and CEO Chip Kahn released the following statement after the Supreme Court heard the oral argument of California v. Texas, a case that could decide the fate of the Affordable Care Act:

“It is imperative that the Supreme Court uphold the ACA. Tens of millions of Americans depend on health coverage and protections provided by the law. In the midst of COVID is no time to let down the millions who we serve as our patients. 

“As caregivers, the goal of hospitals for our patients is to see increased access to affordable coverage for all Americans - not new obstacles. The ACA framework can accomplish this goal. We hope the Supreme Court will see its way clear to allow it to go forward.”
