Emory will not make any changes to its medical plan in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act on Thursday, June 28.

The court largely upheld the individual insurance provisions of health care reform. For Emory, the result is no immediate impact to the medical plan for faculty and staff, according to Human Resources.

After the act was passed in 2012, Emory began planning for the changes required of this legislation and that planning process will continue, says Erin Long, director of communications for Human Resources. The changes made so far to the plans — primarily, free preventive care and coverage of dependents to age 26 — will remain in place.

Human Resources continues to monitor regulations and developments related to the act that may affect the medical plans.
