Lovelace Health System Statement on ACA Supreme Court Ruling

 

Today the Supreme Court upheld most elements of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), particularly the individual insurance mandate at the heart of the law.

The Supreme Court also ruled that the federal government cannot withhold current Medicaid funds if a state chooses not to participate in the Medicaid expansion. Lovelace Health System is a major provider for Medicaid patients. We will wait for the Governor’s decision on how to proceed and work with the state on continuing to offer high-quality health care to the Medicaid population.
