FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Presence Health Statement on June 28, 2012 Supreme Court Decision
The following statement is from Sandra Bruce, FACHE, President and CEO of Presence Health:
In a Supreme Court vote of 5-4, the Affordable Care Act (ACA), including its individual mandate that virtually every American buy health insurance, has been deemed constitutional by the Supreme Court.
With the health care reform law being upheld, Presence Health will continue on its course to follow all federal and state health care reform efforts. We have made significant investments in ACA implementation to enhance quality and expand access to care. We are pleased that access to affordable health care coverage will be available to all.
We will continue to work closely with our elected officials and other policymakers to encourage the support of measures that increase access to care, reduce the number of uninsured and underinsured and transform the way health care is delivered.
