HHS Secretary Sylvia M. Burwell on the Affordable Care Act

A Statement by HHS Secretary Sylvia M. Burwell on the Affordable Care Act

Today’s Supreme Court decision confirms that the Affordable Care Act’s tax credits are available to all eligible Americans no matter where they live. Americans in all 50 states and the District of Columbia can continue to rely on the security and peace of mind that come with affordable, quality health care coverage. Over six million Americans and their families will sleep easier knowing they will still be able to afford health coverage. Millions more won’t have to worry about an upward spiral in their premiums because of today’s decision, even if they didn’t buy their insurance through the Marketplace. And the law’s financial assistance will be available in the next open enrollment so that others can benefit as well.

The Affordable Care Act is working to improve access, affordability and quality. That is the story I hear as I travel across this country. People’s lives have been changed and even saved because they have health insurance—many for the first time. They have coverage that can keep them healthy and provide quality care when they are sick. The Affordable Care Act also strengthens protections for almost every American with health insurance. People with pre-existing conditions can no longer be denied coverage or charged higher premiums. Critical preventive services, like immunizations and certain cancer screenings, are available at no additional cost. Since parents can keep their children on their health insurance policies up to age 26, young Americans can stay in school or find their first job without worrying about their coverage. And your health premiums can no longer be higher just because you are a woman.

I hope that this positive decision will do what the American people want us to do -- focus on the substance and turn to building on the progress we have made. They want us to move forward to provide more Americans with affordable access to quality coverage and create a health care system that improves the quality of care and spends our dollars more wisely.

LatinosAgainstAlzheimer’s: We can stop it by 2020

NLBHA is proud to be a partner of the Coalition of LatinosAgainstAlzheimer’s, the first ever coalition of Latino serving organizations working together to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s disproportionate impact on the Latino community. We hope you will join us as a coalition partner. The coalition works on critical issues including Alzheimer’s research funding, clinical trial diversity, and care-giving resources and support. Together we will work to educate and energize the Latino community around this devastating disease through policy coordination, advocacy, and programming development and collaboration. Today there are an estimated 44.4 million people worldwide dying with dementia, more than those with HIV/AIDS, cancer or chronic heart disease. And there are more than 100 million second-­‐hand victims – caregivers – who are experiencing the emotional, financial and personal health impacts of the disease every minute of every day. This is particularly true of the Latino community, where nearly 40 percent of households report having at least one family caregiver. Furthermore, in coming decades, the numbers of Latinos dying from Alzheimer’s and those caring for them are expected to grow by over 600 percent.
