Supreme Court Upholds Affordable Care Act

June 28, 2012 

In a decision announced today, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that the Affordable Care Act is constitutional. 

A federal law passed in 2010, the Affordable Care Act establishes new standards for insurance coverage. It includes provisions that take effect between March 23, 2010, and 2018. 

As a result of the Court’s ruling, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois will continue to implement the law and help our members understand their coverage and benefits. We remain committed to providing exceptional customer service and health care coverage. 

We will update you as key Affordable Care Act implementation efforts occur and milestones are reached. In the meantime, please contact your provider representative if you have questions or require additional information.
