Humana Statement On U.S. Supreme Court Ruling In King v. Burwell Case


Thursday, June 25, 2015 11:47 am EDT



Public Company Information:


LOUISVILLE, Ky.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM) issued the following statement regarding today’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling in the King v. Burwell case:

Today’s ruling upholding the federal government’s provision of subsidized exchange coverage in federal as well as state-run exchanges provides security for people across the United States who get their health coverage through an Affordable Care Act exchange-based health plan. The subsidies people have relied on to help them pay for their coverage will continue.

Most people enrolled in state and federally-run exchange plans – including more than 80 percent of Humana members with coverage through an exchange – receive a subsidy. The Supreme Court ruling upholding subsidies means that people who currently receive a subsidy – whether they’re enrolled in coverage through a state-based or federal exchange – will continue to receive the extra help.

As Humana works to improve the health of the communities we serve, all of our members – including the hundreds of thousands of Humana members who are enrolled in exchange-based plans – should know that we are committed to helping them achieve their best health.
