Statement From NYC Health + Hospitals President and CEO Mitchell Katz, MD on the Supreme Court’s Decision to Uphold the Affordable Care Act

Jun 17, 2021

“The Affordable Care Act has guaranteed health care to thousands of New Yorkers. It has allowed them to identify a health care plan that suits their needs and budget. As a primary care physician, I know that having health care gives people peace of mind, and today New Yorkers can once again rest easy that their insurance through the ACA will not be taken away. In New York City we know that health care is a human right, which is why NYC Health + Hospitals’ mission is to serve everyone regardless of their ability to pay or immigration status. This should be the last time the ACA is ever challenged in the Supreme Court as it’s now part of the health care fabric of this nation.”
