The future of the Affordable Care Act hangs on arguments this week at the U.S. Supreme Court. The nine justices likely will hand down a decision by early summer.…Mayo Clinic took the unprecedented step of working to influence policy makers during the lead-up to the vote that passed the Affordable Care Act. The Mayo Health Policy Center got more than 2,000 people with health expertise to participate in symposia, conferences and forums, the center's site says. Their consensus was that the health act needed to create value, coordinate care, reform payment and "provide health insurance for all."
