supreme-courtKing v. Burwell Ruling Spares Coverage for 184,000 Wisconsinites.


STATEWIDE - Earlier today the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in the case of King v. Burwell which could have stripped affordable health coverage from millions of Americans, including over 184,000 Wisconsinites. In a 6-3 decision, the court ruled to maintain vital tax credits for states like Wisconsin operating federal health insurance marketplaces.

Wisconsinites were especially at risk because of Governor Scott Walker’s refusal to develop contingency plans for an adverse Supreme Court ruling.

“Today’s U.S. Supreme Court decision ensures that access to health coverage will continue for tens of thousands of Wisconsinites whose freedom was put needlessly at risk,” said Robert Kraig, Executive Director of Citizen Action of Wisconsin. “This historic ruling reaffirms the Affordable Care Act as the law of the land. Now it’s time to move forward to build on the successes of health care reform by accepting enhanced federal funds for BadgerCare, reining in excessive costs, and making sure everyone has affordable health coverage that can never be taken away.”
