Burwell and Jarrett listen as Obama delivers remarks after Supreme Court ruling on "Obamacare" at the White House in Washington

Top Obamacare official looks ahead after Supreme Court ruling

By Susan Cornwell WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. official overseeing Obamacare said on Friday she has not seen any indication that states will back away from running their own health insurance marketplaces now that the Supreme Court has validated the federal insurance exchange. Sylvia Burwell, secretary of Health and Human Services, also said she expected enrollment in both the state and federal health insurance exchanges established under the 2010 Affordable Care Act — called Obamacare — to decline from 10.2 million currently to 9.1 million by the end of 2015. Speaking with reporters in her office, an upbeat Burwell said now that the Court has upheld the law, she is ready to build on the five-year-old program’s progress by continuing to expand Medicaid, which makes benefits available to low-income people.
