CHA, Other Health Care Organizations Unite in Support of ACA

CHA has joined 10 other California organizations — representing health care providers, consumers, payers and communities — in signing on to a joint statement opposing last week’s court ruling in Texas that deemed the Affordable Care Act (ACA) unconstitutional.

While the ruling will be appealed — California Attorney General Xavier Becerra and Gov.-elect Gavin Newsom have already vowed to fight the decision — the decision has generated uncertainty about the future of the ACA.

The joint statement, released Dec. 18, demonstrates the broad support for the ACA, the coverage it has provided to more than 5 million Californians and the value of the law to a sustainable, effective health care system for California.

“…we stand, unified, in opposition to the Texas ruling, and with full-throated support for the work ahead to ensure that all Californians receive the care they need and deserve,” the statement reads.
