WASHINGTON, DC – The Supreme Court today released its ruling in King v. Burwell, finding that tax credit subsidies designed to help make health insurance more affordable can be offered in all states, including those that use the federal exchange.
Marta Tellado, President and CEO of Consumer Reports, lauded the decision, saying, “This is a huge victory for consumers across the country. Millions of Americans who were finally able to access and afford health insurance now have some peace of mind. They know the coverage they depend on to get the care they need and deserve is secure – regardless of where they live.”
Tellado continued, “The time has come to forge ahead to make the nation’s health system even stronger by focusing efforts on issues like improving affordability, transparency and value. These are the issues that are most important to consumers, and they are the issues that Consumer Reports will continue to address.”
