Goodwin Comments on Health Care Law Ruling

RALEIGH -- The following is a statement from North Carolina Insurance Commissioner Wayne Goodwin on the June 25 Supreme Court ruling on King v. Burwell:

If the court had ruled that North Carolinians are ineligible for subsidies to help them pay for their health insurance, there would have been chaos in our market. This ruling provides more stability for policyholders and the insurance industry, and I am relieved that hundreds of thousands of people in our state will not lose their coverage.
