Aetna Inc. (AET: Quote) Thursday issued a statement after Supreme Court ruled to uphold the Affordable Care Act, also known as the federal health care reform law.

Aetna in the statement said, "Today's Supreme Court decision does not change our business strategy or commitment to system reforms that make quality care more affordable and accessible. We are prepared for the changes ahead and will continue to fully comply with the requirements of the Affordable Care Act.

"At the same time, we know that much more must be done to fix the problems that remain in our health care system. We believe there is still time -- if people can come together in a bipartisan way -- to improve quality and affordability. That security is what Americans want and need," Aetna added.
