California Endowment Supports Affordable Care Act

By  

After the second day of oral arguments on the Affordable Care Act, in the Supreme Court, the California Endowment said Congress Has Authority to Correct Health Care.

After the third day, The Endowment said the Supreme Court arguments failed to address the additional costs borne by the people of California, to support the uninsured. The Endowment says every insured individual pays $500 and every insured family in California pays $1,400 today, to cover the cost of the uninsured population.

They say it is a sure sign of a market failure, and that Congress has the authority to regulate the health care delivery system to correct the problem.

The California Endowment statement, by Daniel Zingale, senior vice president of The California Endowment, asserts that the Affordable Care Act will lead to improved public health.

"Congress' ability to regulate and correct the problems with the current health care market should be upheld. The Endowment remains confident the historic Affordable Care Act will lead to improved public health not just in California but across the country."

"California is the state with the largest population of uninsured individuals and families, and where health care for those without insurance costs the rest of the state $10 billion per year. Our state has much at stake and therefore, regardless of the Supreme Court's determination, California should push ahead to implement elements of the Affordable Care Act to bring coverage to millions more people and curb skyrocketing health costs for all Californians."
