With the Supreme Court’s affirmation of King v. Burwell, Janson Wu, Executive Director of Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders (GLAD) issued the following statement:

“This is a terrific and just outcome for people across the U.S. who will not face additional barriers to obtaining the health care they need. Access to care through the ACA is critical for people living with HIV, especially for people of color, those with limited means, and those living in states where HIV is most widespread. Today’s ruling upholding subsidies under federal exchanges will not only ensure access to care for those most in need, it will support continuing efforts to reduce health disparities that we know exist amongst transgender people, people of color, low-income people and LGBT people generally.”
