Supreme Court Upholds Affordable Care Act

Scott Jeansonne, a physician with First Choice Community Healthcare, said that getting more people insurance frees up the clinic’s resources so more patients can be served.

“Not a day goes by that I don’t see a patient three, six, 12 months after they know they should have come in,” Jeansonne said. “The reason is they couldn’t afford to make it to the clinic.”

That delayed treatment results in unhealthy people who drive up health care costs for everyone, he said.
