Black Women's Roundtable Applauds Decision by Supreme Court to Uphold the Affordable Care Act

Washington, DC - Melanie L. Campbell, president and CEO, National Coalition on Black Civic Participation and convener, Black Women's Roundtable issued the following statement on Supreme Court Ruling On the Affordable Care Act.

Millions of Americans, previously uninsured, can today breath a sigh of relief as the u. S. Supreme Court voted 6-3 to uphold a key provision in the Affordable Care Act that provides them with federal subsidies to obtain quality affordable health insurance.

There is no denying the impact the Affordable Health Care Act has had on millions of Americans, most especially women and families, and the economy in general.

In addition to lowering the cost of health insurance overall the ACA provides for tax credits for people who cannot afford health insurance, it stops insurance companies from denying coverage for pre-existing conditions or canceling a policy when someone gets sick.

Also, the creation of new community health centers as well as the requirement for insurance companies to offer a variety of preventive services at no cost to consumers has saved lives and benefitted local economies.

Thank you Supreme Court for voting to move the nation foward to.being healthier and more prosperous.
