Enroll America Ohio’s Statement on King v. Burwell Decision Affirming Financial Assistance Available to Ohioans
June 25, 2015
COLUMBUS, OH – Today, Trey Daly, Ohio State Director of Enroll America, issued the following statement regarding today’s Supreme Court ruling on King v. Burwell, which affirmed that financial assistance will continue to be available to millions of Americans in federally-facilitated marketplace states:
“Today’s decision from the Supreme Court is a victory for the more than 161,000 Ohioans who receive financial help to pay for their coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace. In fact, 85% of Marketplace enrollees in Ohio receive these tax credits, and the average tax credit in Ohio is $255 per month. After finally being able to access quality, affordable health coverage, these consumers can now be certain that the promise of that coverage remains there for them and that they can get the care they need. Consumers should know that nothing has changed; financial help to pay for their plans will be available. And for those who remain uninsured, they should know that financial help for health insurance is available and here to stay. We and our partners here in Ohio are hard at work preparing for the next open enrollment period when we plan to get even more Ohioans covered. Although we’ve always felt confident about the outcome of this case, it’s a relief to finally be able to move past these divisive arguments and continue our work making sure Ohioans know about the health insurance options available to them.”
