Waltham, Mass. – June 25, 2015 – The Massachusetts Medical Society welcomes today’s Supreme Court decision safeguarding access to crucial health care service for millions of patients, said Massachusetts Medical Society President Dennis M. Dimitri, MD.

“The physicians of the Massachusetts Medical Society applaud the decision to uphold Affordable Care Act subsidies in states that do not have their own health care exchanges,” said Dr. Dimitri. “Patients across the United States will not lose access to the care they need and deserve.”

The Massachusetts Medical Society, with more than 25,000 physicians and student members, is dedicated to educating and advocating for the patients and physicians of Massachusetts. The Society, under the auspices of NEJM Group, publishes the New England Journal of Medicine, a leading global medical journal and web site, and NEJM Journal Watch alerts and publications covering 13 specialties. The Society is also a leader in continuing medical education for health care professionals throughout Massachusetts, conducting a variety of medical education programs for physicians and health care professionals. Founded in 1781, MMS is the oldest continuously operating medical society in the country.
