.SecBecerra: Today, the Supreme Court ruled again that the Affordable Care Act is the law of the land. The ACA has given 31 million Americans & counting access to affordable, quality health coverage, regardless of pre-existing conditions.

Today’s decision means that all Americans continue to have a right to access affordable care, free of discrimination.

“As a Member of Congress, I helped draft and pass the ACA. As the Attorney General of California, I took this case all the way to the Supreme Court. And now, as Secretary, I will continue to stand up and stand with you to protect access to affordable health care. The COVID-19 public health emergency has underscored the importance of safeguarding this life-saving law and it is only fitting that the Supreme Court recognized its lawfulness. Now we can build on the Affordable Care Act by implementing the investments that President Biden has made in America’s health with the American Rescue Plan and through the expanded Special Enrollment Period. Every American should have access to the tools they need to lead healthy, full lives.”
