The article discusses the U.S. Supreme Courts decision of upholding the Affordable Care Act. It is suggested that the law will help few people to get health coverage but medical care will still be out of reach for millions of Americans. The Medicaid expansion was undermined by the court decision allowing individual states to opt out which could significantly reduce the law's promise of expanded coverage. However, Medicare expansion will be far more effective than other private schemes.
