Department of Managed Health Care Director Brent Barnhart Issues Statement on Supreme Court Ruling

“With today’s ruling, we will continue our focus on fostering a more fair, transparent and affordable health care system,” said Department of Managed Health Care Director Brent Barnhart.

“California has already implemented many early provisions of the Affordable Care Act, such as allowing children up to age 26 to remain on their parents’ plans and barring insurers from denying coverage to kids with pre-existing medical conditions. We are prepared to fully implement the remainder of the law’s provisions in 2014 that will ensure Californians can access high-quality health care when they need it."
