SCOTUS Decision on ACA a Big Win for Floridians

The opinion issued today by the U.S. Supreme Court will preserve coverage for 23 million Americans by ending the lawsuit brought by Florida’s Attorney General Ashley Moody and 17 other attorneys general to gut the Affordable Care Act, or ACA. Today’s decision is very good news for the millions of Floridians with pre-existing conditions, like asthma, heart disease, and high blood pressure, and the 2 million Floridians who have health care coverage through the federal marketplace.

It’s time to end attacks on the ACA. The landmark federal law, enacted in 2010, has helped remove barriers to coverage and care for people with disabilities, people of color, and those with low income.

Now, with the lawsuit in the rearview mirror, it’s time for Congress to focus on strengthening the ACA by closing the health care coverage gap for 2.2 million uninsured adults across the country and enacting permanent ACA marketplace reforms to make insurance coverage more affordable.
