Steve Ahnen, president of the New Hampshire Hospital Association, released the below statement in response to a federal court ruling in Texas that the Affordable Care Act is unconstitutional:

“We are very disappointed in the recent Federal Court ruling in response to the lawsuit brought against the Affordable Care Act (ACA).   We believe repeal of the ACA would have a devastating impact on the tens of thousands of Granite State residents who have gained coverage under the law, including those with pre-existing conditions and chronic health conditions, and will make it more difficult for hospitals and health systems to serve the patients and communities who depend on them.”
