WASHINGTON, D.C. – Matt Eyles, president and CEO of America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), issued this statement as the Supreme Court granted certiorari in TX v US to consider the validity of the Affordable Care Act (ACA):
“Every American deserves affordable coverage and high-quality care. This has been – and always will be – our commitment.
“We applaud the Supreme Court’s decision to grant certiorari in TX v US, which will remove the continued legal uncertainty that undermines the stability of coverage for nearly 300 million Americans. We are confident that the Supreme Court will agree that the district court’s original decision to invalidate the entire ACA was misguided and wrong, and that zeroing out the mandate was never intended to wreak havoc across the entire American health care system.
“AHIP will continue to engage in the legal process, and health insurance providers remain committed to serving all of their members – strengthening affordability, access and choices for every American.”
