SAN RAMON, Calif., June 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Darryl Cardoza, CEO of Hill Physicians Medical Group, described the U.S. Supreme Court ruling as one that "clears away doubt."
"Over the last two years, many healthcare organizations have been working to respond to the new environment created by the reform legislation," said Darryl Cardoza, CEO of Hill Physicians Medical Group. "All that work has been done under a cloud of uncertainty about whether the law would be upheld. Today's U.S. Supreme Court ruling clears away that doubt. Everyone in health insurance and healthcare delivery now shares a common understanding of what's expected. It's gratifying to know that millions more Americans soon will have access to care, and that doctors, hospitals, plans, employers and consumers now can work together to create more affordable care for everyone."
