WASHINGTON – FAH President and CEO Chip Kahn released the following statement in response to today's U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling on the Affordable Care Act:

"Today’s decision is unfortunate because it leaves this critical law that so many Americans depend on in limbo. Without question, this decision stretches out the timeline on the final fate of pre-existing conditions and other important protections in the ACA. We hope that the courts will act with dispatch to ensure that the vital provisions of the ACA remain in place."
