AIDS United Applauds Supreme Court Ruling on ACA

June 28, 2012

Washington, D.C. -- AIDS United applauds the Supreme Court for upholding the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and maintaining the path to an AIDS-free America.

The provisions rightly upheld by today's decision will help millions of people gain access to affordable health insurance markets including subsidized health insurance for many uninsured and underinsured individuals, expand Medicaid coverage to all people whose income is at or below 133% of the federal poverty level (subject to state participation), and expand patient protections that prevent discrimination and denial of coverage for pre-existing conditions. Tens of thousands of people living with HIV will now have greater access to prevention, treatment and care including life saving drugs.
