Supreme Court to Hear Arguments on ACA

November 02, 2020

On November 10, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in a legal suit seeking to overturn the Affordable Care Act (ACA), including protections for pre-existing medical conditions, no out-of-pocket costs for certain preventative screenings, and the ability for students to be covered under their parent’s health plan until 26. The Trump Administration supports the legal challenge.

HAP and the commonwealth’s hospital community have long supported access to comprehensive health insurance coverage for all Pennsylvanians and will continue to advocate for preserving the ACA’s core tenets and consumer protections and promote policies that mitigate the impacts of the COVID-19 global public health crisis.

For more information about the benefits of health insurance coverage and Pennsylvania’s new state-based exchange, contact Jolene Calla, HAP’s vice president, health care finance and insurance.
