To Our Community Partners:
In light of the federal ruling this past Friday related to the Affordable Care Act (ACA),
Contra Costa County Employment and Human Services Department (EHSD)
Contra Costa Health Services (CCHS)
want to reassure our community that our services continue without interruption.
On December 14th, a U.S. District Court judge in Texas ruled that the Affordable Care Act (ACA)
in response to a lawsuit that 20 states, led by Texas, filed earlier this year.
However, the judge did
grant a request to immediately implement his decision. This means
the current law is still in place, while the legal process continues. In Washington, both the White House and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) immediately released statements confirming that there are
no changes to the law
pending the appeals process.
“...there is no impact to current coverage or coverage in a 2019 plan.”
