WASHINGTON (AP) — Most insurers, hospital executives and state officials expect to keep carrying out President Barack Obama's health care overhaul even after a federal judge cast its fate in doubt by declaring all of it unconstitutional.

William Hoagland, a Cigna vice president, says it's still the law of the land and the ruling this week by U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson in Florida won't slow down compliance. Insurers tried to kill the law in Congress.

The Deloitte Center for Health Solutions says it does not believe hospitals, drug companies and other major health industry players will hit the stop button either.

Many in the industry are dissatisfied with the law, but they also see it was a vehicle to start addressing problems of cost and quality.
