Today’s Victory for Consumers in King v. Burwell

By William Tomasko

Today’s Supreme Court decision on financial help in the health insurance marketplaces is a victory for millions of Americans who finally have access to quality, affordable health coverage.

Our president Anne Filipic released the following statement today:

“Although we’ve always felt confident about the outcome of this case, it’s a relief to finally be able to move past these divisive arguments so we can focus on getting more Americans covered in the next enrollment period, and supporting the newly insured as they use and renew their coverage. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, more than 10 million Americans have coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace, and 85% of them receive financial help to pay for their plan. Today’s decision by the Supreme Court assures those consumers that the promise of affordable health coverage will still be there for them. Right now, our priority is to make sure consumers know what this ruling means: that nothing has changed about their financial help. And this is a critical opportunity to inform those who have not yet enrolled that financial help is available, and here to stay. Opponents have repeatedly attempted to derail this law, but in spite of that opposition, it is working and millions of Americans are benefiting. Today I’m gratified and relieved that those Americans can continue to get the financial help that the law provides.”

Working with our 4,600 partners around the country, we will continue to use data-driven outreach strategies to educate consumers about their options for financial help, in-person assistance, and plan selection.

Because of today’s news, the promise of affordable coverage will still be there for millions of Americans.  If you’re committed to reaching the remaining uninsured — and making sure the newly insured are able to stay covered — sign up to learn more about how we can work together!
