Maine Physicians Respond to U.S. Supreme Court Decision Upholding Affordable Care Act – Statement by Maine Medical Association President Nancy Cummings, MD

Just moments ago the United States Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act leaving intact virtually all of its provisions and most importantly, the individual mandate.  The Maine Medical Association has supported the requirement that individuals be covered for health care expenses since 2003 and it is the foundation upon which our White Paper on Health System Reform is built.
