NWLC Shares Insights into Supreme Court Consideration of Affordable Care Act

Several lawsuits have been filed to challenge the Affordable Care Act.Two courts of appeals upheld the constitutionality of the new national health care law, while one overturned it. The Supreme Court has agreed to hear two of these cases in March and issue a decision by June 2012.

To make clear what's at stake, the National Women ‘s Law Center (NLWC) explores the legal challenges, and examines what women could lose if the law is struck down. When it goes into effect in 2014, the Affordable Care Act puts an end to insurance companies' practice of treating women as if we are a pre-existing condition. Already, the law is helping women and families by making it illegal for insurance companies to drop a person who gets sick, prohibiting insurers from denying coverage to children with pre-existing conditions, and ensuring that new health plans provide no-cost, preventive health screening services, such as mammograms and pap smears. Medicaid coverage will expand to cover 8.2 million more women, guarantee maternity coverage, and end the practice of charging women more than men for the same level of coverage. All of this is at stake in the decision to be rendered by the Supreme Court.
