MSSNY Supports US Supreme Court Decision to
Uphold the ACA in California v. Texas


Statement from Joseph Sellers, MD
President, Medical Society of the State of New York

We appreciate that the US Supreme Court has—once again—upheld the legality of the Affordable Care Act.  We hope this case once and for all stops these lawsuits which unnecessarily endanger health insurance coverage for millions of patients across New York and across the country.

“While MSSNY continues to pursue reforms to the law that would help to better ensure patients can obtain comprehensive first-dollar health insurance coverage, the ACA has importantly set the stage for millions across New York State to obtain health insurance coverage that they previously they were unable to afford.

“MSSNY looks forward to working with patient and physician groups across New York State and across the country to expand comprehensive health insurance coverage options for our patients.”
