Hospital associations back healthcare law
Modern Healthcare

Six major hospital associations have filed an amicus brief in support of the federal government in the case brought by the state of Virginia to repeal the healthcare reform law.

The reform law’s mandate that all Americans carry health insurance is lawful because, whether they purchase health insurance or not, everyone participates in the healthcare system, argue the American Hospital Association, National Association of Public Hospitals and Health Systems, Association of American Medical Colleges, Catholic Health Association, Federation of American Hospitals and National Association of Children’s Hospitals.
