AG Healey Statement on D.C. Circuit Court Decision to Grant Motion to Intervene in Affordable Care Act Case

BOSTON - AG Healey issued the following statement on the D.C. Circuit Court's decision this evening to grant a motion to intervene in House v. Price, in defense of the Affordable Care Act's cost-sharing reduction subsidies. 

“The D.C. Circuit Court’s ruling is a win for states and a major hit to the Trump Administration’s efforts to sabotage the Affordable Care Act. With the court’s decision, the states won the right to defend payments that help millions of Americans access affordable health insurance. As long as the Trump Administration keeps playing politics with the health of our residents, we will be there to defend access to care in Massachusetts and across the country.”

In May, AG Healey joined a coalition of 16 attorneys general who moved to intervene in the case in order to protect millions of Americans' access to affordable health care.
