Cedar Rapids, IA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/21/2015 -- The Affordable Care Act, colloquially known as "Obamacare," went into effect five years ago. Since then, the law has made health insurance more accessible to millions of individuals and families, but has also been met with intense legal opposition. Recently, yet another challenge to the law was struck down in a 6-3 Supreme Court ruling. ImageFIRST of Cedar Rapids, a medical linen and laundry service that prides itself on excellent customer care, would like to announce its support of the ruling, as it directly benefits Americans.
The recently defeated challenge to the Affordable Care Act would have eliminated subsidies in at least 34 states that elected to not set up independent health insurance exchanges and instead offer health insurance through healthcare.gov. Had the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the challenge, an estimated 6.4 million Americans would have not been able to afford coverage. Furthermore, the subsidies help to finance hospitals, health insurers and other key players in the healthcare industry. Without the subsidization made possible by the Affordable Care Act, many Cedar Rapids medical facilities could be short of funding and unable to provide the standards of care that their patients expect.
As a company dedicated to improving patient satisfaction at outpatient medical facilities and hospitals, ImageFIRST of Cedar Rapids supports the continuance of Affordable Care Act subsidies.
