Supreme Court Upholds ACA Subsidies in Federal Exchanges

In a major victory for the Obama administration, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled this morning that the U.S. Internal Revenue Service had the authority to issue regulations allowing Affordable Care Act subsidies to be granted by health care exchanges that were not established by a state. The ruling protects the subsidies granted to individuals purchasing health insurance in the 34 exchanges operated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. In a 6-3 decision, Chief Justice John Roberts, writing for the majority, said that while language in the ACA could be read to mean that subsidies are limited to state established exchanges, the law when read as a whole provides a sufficient basis for concluding that Congress intended to allow subsidies in all exchanges.

ASA legal experts will explain the court’s decision and what it means for staffing firms during the ASA webinar “The King v. Burwell Decision and Its Impact on the Affordable Care Act.” It takes place Wednesday, July 8, 3–4 p.m. Eastern time. It’s free for ASA members, but space is limited.
