Sixty thousand of Georgia’s nearly 10 million residents will see the cost of their healthcare coverage increase under the Affordable Care Act. That’s according to a report released Thursday by the liberal healthcare consumer watchdog Families USA. Families USA says 0. 6 percent of Georgians will have their health coverage terminated because it doesn’t meet the new standards of the Affordable Care Act.
A landmark Supreme Court decision regarding the constitutionality of President Obama’s health care plan could be handed down any day now. Attorney General Sam Olens met with healthcare policy advisors to discuss the impact on Georgia.
