Independence Blue Cross President and CEO Daniel J. Hilferty discusses the June 28, 2012 Supreme Court ruling on the Affordable Care Act.
Supreme Court Rules Upholds health care reform law
The Supreme Court has upheld the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, known as “health care reform.”
Our customers deserve and need secure and affordable health care coverage. The law that the court upheld takes a first step towards comprehensive reform by expanding coverage to millions of Americans. But there is a lot more work to be done to improve patient care and lower costs for our customers.
On behalf of our 3.1 million members, we will continue to lead the way in transforming health care by partnering with doctors, nurses, hospitals and others to help people stay well and better manage their care.
We will also continue to implement the law, while working with policymakers to fix provisions in the Affordable Care Act that could increase costs for our customers. We hope the information presented here helps you better understand what the law means to you. Please check back with this section of our website for updates.
