AOA Applauds Supreme Court Decision Upholding Federal Health Care Subsidies

​Statement attributable to American Osteopathic Association President Robert S. Juhasz, DO

Washington, DC —June 25, 2015— The American Osteopathic Association shares the relief of the 6.4 million Americans whose subsidized access to health care is preserved by today’s decision. The $1.7 billion in federal subsidies provide far more benefit than just making insurance affordable. Americans are visiting physicians to take control of their health and address problems at the earliest, most treatable stages, lowering overall health care costs for the nation and keeping our workforce productive.
