Ascension Health Statement on Supreme Court Ruling on the Affordable Care Act
“The passage of healthcare reform marked a significant step for our country and toward Ascension Health’s commitment to Healthcare That Leaves No One Behind, which includes 100 percent access and coverage for all Americans. The Supreme Court’s decision today is another important step in ensuring 100 percent access and coverage for all Americans. Ascension Health supports the expansion of Medicaid and we will continue to review the decision for clarification on Medicaid expansion penalties.
"Our work to make healthcare more accessible and affordable for all and our advocacy efforts on behalf of those who are most vulnerable will continue. We look forward to demonstrating this commitment through our ongoing support of healthcare reform as we work to ensure the implementation of benefits for those most in need.”
