For Immediate Release

WEST PALM BEACH (June 28, 2012) – Palm Beach County Medical Society (PBCMS) President Jack Zeltzer, MD, released the following statement today regarding the Supreme Court’s decision on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA):

“Now that the Supreme Court has made its decision on the PPACA, PBCMS must work within the framework to continue doing what we deem to be right. Palm Beach County’s physicians will continue to ensure that our patients have access to quality, affordable health care delivered by the physician of their choice. PBCMS is also committed to the preservation of physician autonomy as a main pillar in support of proper patient care. Additionally, we will continue our work to eliminate fraud and waste in the health care system. It is critical to address these issues now so that patients can receive the first-class care they deserve and so that physicians can provide that care in a patient-focused, cost-effective way.”

Editor’s Note: We note that the Palm Beach County Medical Society’s above Statement neither praises nor criticizes the Supreme Court’s decision upholding the Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act (which Conservatives call “Obamacare”). To place the apparently non-partisan nature of this Statement in context, it may be helpful to know that according to the Palm Beach County, Florida Supervisor of Elections, out of 838,564 registered voters in Palm Beach County as of June 30, 2012, approximately 29% are registered Republicans, approximately 44% are registered Democrats, and about 27% are shown as “Other.”
