In Reaction to This Supreme Court ruling Now dismissing the Most Recent challenge to the Affordable Care Act,” Andrew Dreyfus, president & CEO of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts (Blue Cross), Published the following Announcement:
We are happy the Supreme Court ruled to dismiss the challenge to the Affordable Care Act. Now’s decision cements among our nation’s most important recent parts of federal policy laws, which for the very first time radically enlarged coverage for Americans with no medical insurance. At this time, 90 percent of Americans have health care through their tasks, the individual marketplace, Medicare and Medicaid.
The Court’s decision upholds not only the ACA but also the vision a group of Massachusetts healthcare leaders, industry leaders, advocates and many others needed at in 2006, to begin a motion to change the way we think about healthcare. In Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, we think healthcare is a human right, and our business is pleased with our job to guarantee near-universal policy in our nation.
Since the law has been upheld, it is time for our elected leaders to enhance the ACA, and make a healthcare system that’s high quality, cheaper, and fair. As we have seen during the COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever that everyone has access to affordable healthcare, regardless of who you are, where you live or what a health condition could be.
We’re dedicated to the constant pursuit of quality, honest and affordable healthcare with an unparalleled customer experience. Consistent with our guarantee to always put our members , we’re rated one of the country’s best health programs for member satisfaction and quality.
