COSE Reacts to U.S. Supreme Court Upholding the Affordable Care Act
June 28, 2012 -- "Our members share opinions on both sides of this law, depending on their size and their personal situations. As an organization, our focus has been to direct attention to the need to reduce the cost of health care, the inclusion of more people in the health care system, the creation of a widely available and accessible basic benefits plan, and the connections of consumer behavior and availability of information to decision making in health care. The ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court June 28 addresses some of these issues.
With nearly 40 years of experience in small business health care, COSE understands the challenges small businesses face accessing insurance. The law works to address these issues, which is a step forward. However, true progress can only be made if we address the cost of care and the resulting cost of health insurance to small businesses and their employees. Now that we have a clearer direction, COSE looks forward to continuing its advocacy efforts and action as a voice and resource for small businesses."
