National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) President and Florida Insurance Commissioner Kevin M. McCarty today issued the following statement in regard to the ruling of the Supreme Court of the United States regarding the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act:
"While the NAIC has taken no position on the law, as an organization we have continued our mission of providing information and support to state regulators so that they may best serve their consumers and their markets. We will continue to work to give regulators the tools they need to ensure a stable health insurance marketplace in the states. Where the ACA provides states with latitude, regulators will continue to work with insurers, consumer groups and the public to provide the best regulatory framework going forward."
