Health Care Law Upheld

Healthy Teen Network is thrilled with today’s long-awaited Supreme Court decision to uphold the Affordable Care Act. We applaud the leadership of the Justices, and the willingness to explore every angle of the law that was required to come to today’s decision.

With the upholding of the Act and the expansion of Medicaid, The New York Times reports that tens of millions of Americans will gain health care coverage. Access to health care and preventive services for all is vitally important in ensuring a healthy nation, and we are encouraged to know that Americans who have, in the past, faced financial and other challenges in their efforts to receive healthcare will no longer be met with these barriers.

As more information becomes available, Healthy Teen Network will continue to update our members and other stakeholders with timely information about how the implementation of the Affordable Care Act will benefit adolescents, pregnant and parenting teens, and those who work with these populations.
