US Healthcare Reform is Here to Stay. Medical Tourism Magazine has been following the healthcare reform debate and issues and bringing you live the ruling of the US Supreme Court. Whether you are for or against Healthcare Reform you know by now that the Supreme Court has made the unprecedented decision to allow the law to stay in effect. Healthcare Reform Legislation, PPACA, was signed into law March 23, 2010 and provides the most sweeping changes we have ever seen to healthcare and health insurance in America. PPACA has far reaching effects on insurance companies and corporations.
“The Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the Affordable Care Act is an historic victory for the tens of millions more Americans who will be covered by health insurance. The law’s effects will be significant in our state, where over two million people are uninsured. Over a million uninsured New Yorkers will soon have access to affordable coverage. This law will continue to provide a spectrum of key consumer protections including keeping young adults on their parents’ plans, ending pre-existing condition restrictions, and increasing consumer information about health care choices. My office stands ready to enforce the Affordable Care Act to ensure that all New Yorkers will benefit from the law’s protections.” -Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman
The U.S. Supreme Court upheld the core of President Barack Obama’s health-care overhaul. The justices, voting 5-4, said Congress has the power to make Americans carry insurance or pay a penalty. That requirement is at the core of the law, which also forces insurers to cover people with pre-existing health conditions. The court limited the law’s extension of the Medicaid program for the poor by saying the federal government can’t threaten to withhold money from states that don’t fully comply.

Healthcare Reform is expected to increase health insurance costs, driving US employers to look at creative ways to lower healthcare and health insurance costs. Industry experts believe this will be very positive to medical tourism as more employers and insurers turn towards medical tourism as one of the few ways to stop rising healthcare and insurance costs.
