The following is a statement regarding the U.S. Supreme Court decision on King v. Burwell, attributable to Jerry Halverson, MD, Wisconsin Medical Society President:

“Now that the United States Supreme Court has ruled in King v. Burwell, it’s time to focus on the future.

“The challenge before all of us is to maintain the provisions within the Affordable Care Act that are working and improve those provisions that are not. Our collective goal always must be to have a health care delivery system that provides the highest quality, most cost-efficient care to all Americans.

“The Wisconsin Medical Society looks forward to working with federal and state policymakers, our health care colleagues and the public to achieve this crucial goal.”
