Important news broke this week on the national scene as the U.S.
Supreme Court decided 6-3 in King v. Burwell on Thursday. Insurance
premium subsidies will therefore continue to flow to Americans in
all states under the Affordable Care Act. The justices sided with
the Obama administration in the historic decision, saying the
healthcare law allows Americans in all states—not just those that
established their own exchanges—to receive the subsidies.
An estimated 6.4 million Americans receive the subsidies in the
34 states that don't have their own exchanges, in many cases
relying on them to afford their health insurance, according to HHS.
Many had worried a decision in the opposite direction would lead to
a dramatic spike in the nation's uninsured and the disintegration
of the healthcare law itself.
The challengers in the case pointed to one part of the law that
says subsidies are available only to those who enroll through an
“exchange established by the state.” The federal government,
however, argued that the law's purpose is clear in allowing
Americans in every state to be eligible for subsidies and that
other parts of the law indicate that.
July 1 is again upon us, that chaotic time in teaching hospitals
when new residents begin their duties and former first-year
residents are now promoted to second year, with the responsibility
of supervising brand new graduates. I am always energized by the
opportunity to work with our new medical school graduates and I
hope that each of you can experience the enjoyment of teaching and
mentoring the next generation of physicians.
Another decision by the Supreme Court last week that individuals
in a same sex relationship have a constitutional right to civil
marriage is an historic step forward to the goal of ensuring equal
access to healthcare for all Americans.
