Catholic Health Association 'pleased' with Supreme Court ruling

 |  NCR Today

The following statement is being released by Sr. Carol Keehan, DC, president and chief executive officer of the Catholic Health Association of the United States:

The Catholic Health Association is taking time to carefully read and evaluate the Supreme Court's decision on the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and may have additional comments once our review is complete.

We are pleased that, based on an initial read of the ruling, the ACA has been found constitutional and will remain in effect. CHA has long supported health reform that expands access and coverage to everyone. We signed onto amicus briefs encouraging the Court to find in favor of the ACA’s individual mandate and the Medicaid expansion.

As the ruling is examined, Catholic-sponsored health care providers will continue to lead health care transformation -- finding new and better ways to provide compassionate, high-quality care while strengthening the communities we serve.

In the coming weeks and months we will continue working closely with our members, Congress and the Administration to implement the ACA as fairly and effectively as possible.
