Care Reform Update
month's Supreme Court ruling upholding the individual mandate and related
insurance provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) means that the rules
governing the New York market are effectively unchanged from where they
were prior to the decision.
EmblemHealth will continue to comply with all provisions of the ACA. In
keeping with our 75-year legacy to make quality health care available to
all New Yorkers, we have already implemented key mandates of health care
reform, including extending coverage of dependents up to age 26 and
eliminating cost-sharing for in-network preventive care. In August 2012, we
will be expanding access to preventive services for women's wellness. We
are committed to leading the market with an integrated delivery system that
promotes prevention and wellness, helps patients and physicians manage
chronic disease and rewards quality.
The next 18 months will present many challenges as New York moves forward
with ACA implementation and seeks to put in place significant changes to
its individual and small group markets. We will continue to keep you
informed of further developments in the coming months.
