CHE Statement on Supreme Courtís Decision on the Affordable Care Act

Newtown Square, Pa., June 28, 2012 Ė In what some have called the most significant Supreme Court ruling of the last 50 years, the United States Supreme Court today announced its decision on the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). In summary, the Court has upheld the constitutionality of the individual mandate and other key provisions of the ACA. Because of the length and complexity of the Courtís decision, we will take time to carefully read the Courtís ruling in its entirety and evaluate its ramifications.

For years, Catholic Health East (CHE) has advocated for a reformed health care system that provides compassionate, person-centered care, improves the health of populations, and provides higher quality at a lower cost. CHEís strategic vision calls us to be a transforming, healing presence in the communities we are privileged to serve, and to continue our efforts to advocate for the poor and underserved.
