Blue Shield Comments on Federal Judge Ruling Against Affordable Care Act

A federal judge in Texas ruled Friday that the Affordable Care Act is unconstitutional

Blue Shield of California believes all Americans should have access to quality health coverage, including those with pre-existing medical conditions, no matter who they are or where they live.

Today’s federal district court ruling is the first step in what we expect will be a lengthy legal process. Our members can be assured that their health coverage remains in place, and patients will continue to receive the care they need. Open enrollment for 2019 individual coverage also is unaffected, and we will continue to help consumers find the coverage they need at the best possible price.

While we are disappointed in the court’s ruling, we will continue to work with lawmakers on a bipartisan basis to ensure that all Americans can access the consistent, quality health coverage they need and deserve.
