Trump administration’s latest court filing urges Supreme Court to overturn ACA; HANYS continues to oppose this effort
On Thursday night, the Trump administration continued its attack on the Affordable Care Act by asking the Supreme Court to strike down the law in its entirety. In its filing, the administration asserts the law cannot stand now that the individual mandate is no longer in effect. The administration does not seek carve-outs for provisions that have bipartisan popularity, such as protections for pre-existing conditions.
HANYS fully supports ACA’s coverage expansion and consumer protection provisions. We will continue to engage with the New York congressional delegation and other partners in Washington to ensure the ACA is held intact and that the interests of New York’s hospitals and health systems and the patients they serve are at the forefront of the conversation on the future of healthcare.
