Commissioner Mike Chaney issues statement on Supreme Court Health Care Ruling

Commissioner of Insurance Mike Chaney –

“Today the United States Supreme Court issued a ruling in the King v. Burwell case, in favor of the defendant, Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell, which means federal tax credit subsidies can legally continue to be applied in states where the

Individual Health Insurance Marketplace, commonly called the Exchange, is operated by the federal government. Since Mississippi’s Marketplace is operated by the federal government, this ruling means that over 100,000 Mississippians who purchased individual health insurance through the Marketplace will continue to receive health insurance coverage.

“Although I may not agree with everything in the Affordable Care Act, it remains the law of the land and I will continue to work within the framework of the law to regulate health insurance for the benefit of all Mississippians.”
