BISMARCK, N.D. — Community health centers in North Dakota are applauding the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to uphold the federal health care reform law.
Community Health Care Association of the Dakotas spokeswoman Stacie Fredenburg says the high court's decision Thursday should allow the state's 15 health centers to continue to expand and be funded.
Fredenburg says more than 32,000 patients sought care at the clinics in North Dakota last year and the need is growing.
Census Bureau data show about 83,000 North Dakotans had no health insurance in 2010.
