In a widely publicized recent health care ruling, the Supreme Court largely upheld the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA).

The rest of the Act remains intact and is the law of the land. The summary below discusses what the decision means for various stakeholders:

- States

- Health insurance plans

- Hospitals and other health care providers

- Massachusetts residents
