Supreme Court Upholds Health Care Reform: Find Out What It Means for You!
Eight American presidents have tried to advance major health reform in the United States—only one succeeded. Today, the Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the 2010 bill that will bring health coverage to 32 million more Americans and the only successful legislative attempt to level the health insurance playing field for those who have coverage. After the Court’s ruling, the law stands. Now it’s time to move forward and continue to make it a reality.
This is a big win for Latino health; millions of Hispanics who currently live without coverage will gain some form of affordable health insurance. The entire law was upheld as constitutional, a huge victory for our community. An important provision that would expand Medicaid was also ruled as constitutional but was limited by the Court. We will continue to analyze how this provision affects our community.
