Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts announced Thursday that the Court has upheld President Barack Obama’s healthcare overhaul mandate to obtain health insurance. Roberts was the swing decision in the 5-4 vote.
The president’s healthcare policy, recognized as his signature legislative achievement, would provide an additional 30 million Americans with healthcare insurance.
"Today's decision by the Supreme Court is certainly a monumental ruling in American history. From the healthcare perspective, we believe this will result in hospitals and health systems increasing their range of services to meet the demands of the Act. In order to survive and prosper, it will be critical to have all the necessary acute and non-acute components for complete patient care. Fortunately, is well positioned as it has been moving down this path for the past several years. We will be analyzing the new requirements once all of the mandate regulations are announced," said Reynold Jennings, CEO & president, WellStar Health System.
