"Our Office has previously expressed concerns about several provisions of the Affordable Care Act and the potential for detrimental impacts on the availability and affordability of health insurance. Today, the United States Supreme Court's ruling affirmed the substance of the Affordable Care Act.


With the affirmation of the Affordable Care Act, I remain concerned about the potential for increased health insurance premiums and continued disruption to the stability of the marketplace for many Floridians. Nevertheless, we will work with the Florida Legislature and Gov. Scott to implement the Supreme Court's decision and develop an implementation strategy that minimizes market disruption and allows Florida's health insurers and HMOs to continue to provide coverage in our state.


I would like to commend Florida Gov. Rick Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi for their diligent efforts on behalf of Florida's citizens."
