Venable partner and former Michigan Congressman Bart Stupak was quoted in multiple publications following the Supreme Court’s 5-4 ruling on the Affordable Care Act. Stupak was quoted in the June 28, 2012 issues of the Washington Post, The Detroit News, and Government Health IT.
The Washington Post quoted Stupak calling on the government and the healthcare industry to begin “developing and implementing the programs as quickly as possible. The demand for health care is about to explode as baby boomers age.”
In an interview with The Detroit News, Stupak spoke about the impact of the ruling on his home state of Michigan. “The states and especially Michigan with the insurance exchange have a lot of work to do,” said Stupak. “The Michigan legislature and governor have a long ways to go.”
Commenting to Government Health IT, Stupak said “the focus within the executive branch, in the states, and throughout the healthcare industry will be on developing and implementing the programs as quickly as possible… It will be critical for all parties involved in the healthcare system — providers, hospitals, insurers, and the government — to innovate and develop methods for reducing the costs of delivering quality healthcare.”
