Washington (January 21, 2020) – In response to the Supreme Court’s decision not to expedite the case of Texas v. United States, the Alliance of Community Health Plans has released the following statement:
“We’re disappointed in the Court’s refusal to expedite Texas v. United States. Prolonged confusion about the survival of the ACA disrupts the market and makes it more difficult to provide long-term coverage. Despite ongoing instability, our member health organizations have stayed the course & remain committed to providing high-quality, affordable coverage and care to families nationwide. We hope future decisions restore stability to the exchanges that millions of Americans rely on.”
