Hospital Associations Urge Appeals Court To Reverse ACA Ruling
HealthLeaders Media

National and state hospitals groups warn that invalidating the Affordable Care Act would have ‘disastrous’ consequences for tens of millions of Americans and the nation’s healthcare infrastructure.

The nation’s largest hospital associations and 24 state hospital associations on Monday filed amicus briefs urging a federal appeals court to reject a Texas court’s “judicial repeal” of the Affordable Care Act.

“If upheld, it will unwind eight years of progress under the ACA’s broad set of reforms,” read the joint amicus brief submitted by the American Hospital Association, Federation of American Hospitals, the Catholic Health Association of the United States, America’s Essential Hospitals, and the Association of American Medical Colleges.
