WASHINGTON – Blue Cross Blue Shield Association president and CEO Scott P. Serota issued the following statement today in response to the Supreme Court’s decision in the King v. Burwell case:
Today’s Supreme Court ruling ensures that millions of Americans can receive financial assistance from the government to help them continue to afford their health insurance coverage. Blue Cross and Blue Shield (BCBS) companies are committed to providing quality, affordable coverage community by community, nationwide, and we will continue in that long tradition.
There is still more work to be done to make healthcare more affordable.
BCBS companies are partnering with patients, physicians and hospitals to transform the healthcare system to provide coordinated, quality care that helps patients get healthy faster and stay healthy longer, while reining in costs for everyone.
