Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Patients' Health!
June 28, 2012
Our board chair Douglas Laube, MD, MEd, celebrates today's Supreme Court decision upholding health care reform:
"Thanks to today's ruling, we can move closer to the day when our patients won't go without basic medical care because they can't pay for it. The Affordable Care Act has already begun to change health insurance in the United States for the better, doing away with pre-existing conditions, gender-rating (making insurance more expensive for women than men), and other practices that have hurt women’s health."
Read the rest of Dr. Laube's statement on the court's decision. See our physicians' stories about patients who suffered because they either didn't have insurance or had insurance without coverage for women's preventive health care. The Affordable Care Act will help make these patients' tragedies a thing of the past.
