Today the US Supreme Court affirmed almost all of the 2010 national health reform Affordable Care Act. This is a wonderful outcome for Connecticut – for the 200,000 who will now get coverage, for the $1.5 billion/year to our state to make coverage affordable for low income residents, for 26 year-olds who can stay on their parents’ policies, for the state budget which stands to gain $250 million/year, for women who won’t be charged more than men for insurance, for anyone with a pre-exisiting condition, for seniors on Medicare who will see their donut hole close, and for all of us who will benefit by controlling skyrocketing health costs.
