Physicians is thrilled at the news of the King v. Burwell Supreme Court ruling. The Court has ruled 6-3 that the Affordable Care Act may continue to provide nationwide tax subsidies to help people buy health insurance and access the health care they need.
Our board chair Dr. Nancy Stanwood said:
“Access to medical care is fundamental to the well-being of the patients we physicians care for every day….We know firsthand that women often neglect their health needs to pay for other life essentials such as food and housing. This ruling ensures that no woman will need to choose between her family’s financial well-being and her own health. This is a victory for public health and puts families first.”
