MHA CEO Brian PetersToday’s opinion issued by the U.S. Supreme Court on California v. Texas is a victory for all who believe in expanding access to healthcare. The decision upholds the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and keeps in place a system that provides health insurance to millions of Americans, access to care for millions of residents with preexisting conditions and has launched innovative models of care that have improved patients’ lives and saved billions of healthcare dollars. The success of the ACA is apparent in Michigan, as the Healthy Michigan Plan provides over 900,000 working Michiganders with comprehensive, affordable health insurance who otherwise would be uninsured.
