American College of Physicians (ACP) Applauds SCOTUS for
(Washington, June 25, 2015) The American College of Physicians -
the nation's largest medical specialty society and second largest
physician group - applauds today's opinion of the Supreme Court of
the United States in the King versus Burwell case.
In an opinion issued today, the Supreme Court ruled that the
premium subsidies created by the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which
are essential to making coverage affordable to millions, will
continue to be available in states where the federal government
manages their health insurance marketplaces.
ACP President Dr. Wayne J. Riley, MPH, MBA,MACP said, "we are
thrilled and gratified by the Court's ruling, which affirms that
the citizens of all 50 states will have the opportunity to access
either a state or federal exchange to obtain subsidies to purchase
health insurance policies which benefits themselves, their families
and loved ones."
In March, the College joined with other health advocacy
organizations in an amicus
brief urging the court to uphold the subsidies, because of the
grave danger a ruling against them would pose for patient care and
the health and well-being of all Americans.
Dr. Riley further added that "the Patient Protection &
Affordable Care Act of 2010 is now more than ever, the law of the
land and we urge the Congress to work with this and future
administrations to improve it in the years ahead."
To illustrate, had the Supreme Court ruled with the petitioners
in King versus Burwell and overturned the subsidies, the Kaiser
Family Foundation estimates 6.4 million people would have been in
immediate danger of losing their premium tax credits, and
subsidized enrollees would have seen a 287 percent average premium
increase. The Urban Institute/Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
estimates the number of uninsured would have increased by 8.2
For many years, ACP has advocated for every American to have
access to affordable coverage, knowing that uninsured people live
sicker and die younger than those with insurance. By upholding the
ACA's premium subsidies in all states, the Supreme Court decision
will ensure continued coverage for many millions of Americans-and
as a result, better health for them.
The American College of Physicians is the
largest medical specialty organization and the second-largest
physician group in the United States. ACP members include 141,000
internal medicine physicians (internists), related subspecialists,
and medical students. Internal medicine physicians are specialists
who apply scientific knowledge and clinical expertise to the
diagnosis, treatment, and compassionate care of adults across the
spectrum from health to complex illness. Follow ACP on Twitter and Facebook.
