Disability Advocates React to Affordable Care Act RulingJune 28, 2012 | Insurance News
A disability advocacy group, Easter Seals, issued a press release earlier today applauding the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision regarding the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Easter Seals is a nonprofit organization that provides services for people with developmental disabilities, autism, special needs and physical disabilities.
The Senior Vice President at Easter Seals believes the ACA will have a positive impact on people with disabilities and their families:
People with disabilities and their families have their lives dictated by the status of their health insurance. If a family with a child with a disability has insurance, that family typically will not change jobs for fear of losing coverage. . . . The Supreme Court’s ruling today tells these families they can make decisions about what is best for them as a family, and not be controlled by fear of losing health insurance coverage.
