SCPHCA Statement Regarding the Supreme Court Decision on King V. Burwell

posted on Thursday, June 25, 2015

Today's Supreme Court decision will allow health care subsidies to continue nationwide.  The decision is a victory for the people of South Carolina who depend on Community Health Centers for affordable and accessible healthcare.

Many new patients coming to health centers hold an insurance card for the first time in their lives. Yet, many of them previously delayed seeking the care needed resulting in complex health conditions that could have been prevented.  Today's decision means they can continue to keep their coverage to affordable, life-saving care, whether at a health center or another healthcare provider. Whether or not they should get their care is no longer a choice they have to make. Approximately 154,200 people in South Carolina risked losing their health insurance subsidies. We are pleased that these South Carolinians will not lose their subsidies and will continue to have access to affordable insurance.

Community Health Centers are a critical source of health care for more than 325,000 people in South Carolina, particularly those in underserved communities. The Supreme Court ruling affirms what many in the Community Health Center community believe, in both mission and practice: that all people deserve affordable health care and coverage to ensure good health.
