The Supreme Court decision of June 28, 2012, returns healthcare reform to the headlines and will likely act as a catalyst to accelerate those initiatives that were on hold pending the ruling.
In a widely awaited ruling, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS or court) upheld the Affordable Care Act (ACA) except for a Medicaid-related provision.
The rulings answer some questions, but raise others. Organizations will need to reassess implementation schedules and internal skills and systems needed to comply with ACA.
Those preferring to wait until all questions are answered may be forced to react in the face of financial reporting, tax or other federal deadlines.
